How does attachment contradict love in Hindu teachings?
And what exactly is love without attachment?Battle of Kurukshetra… According to the Mahabharata , this is the biggest massacre in the ancient world… because OF ATTENTION! Not because of a king who was unlucky at dice, but because of affection… The affections of King Tritarashta for his sons, Duryodhan for the throne, Guru Drona for his son… Bhishmas to their promise, Pandavas to their wife, children, etc., etc., etc… So what does it turn out to be? Dharma is love and empathy.Attachment is Adharma. But how can you love someone or something if you are not attached to them? Or how to sympathize with someone if that's what you're looking for… don't care?
