I came across this bundle of knots and immediately was reminded of the hrdaya granthih the hard knot of material attachment in the heart. Every time we become attached to someone or something in the material world, we form a knot in our heart. Imagine the state of our heart!
The most prominent knot for us is the bodily attraction to the opposite gender. Other knots are formed subsequent to this knot. Very soon, a bundle of complicated knots results and to untie this is next to impossible. The result? A pure living entity is completely bound up in a network of illusion, thereby prolonging his stay in the miserable yet appealing material world.
We can cut these knots with the sword of knowledge. We practice Krsna consciousness and avoid further indulgence. Very soon, these knots will be slashed. We will soon be free.
