Married people hear this saying, “getting married and raising a family is getting entrapped in the shackles of Maya (illusion, worldly attachment)” every now and then. To the bachelors, family life and household is like being trapped inside a web of problems and tensions.For them remaining unmarried seems like being in heaven. But if you think about it, this statement turns out to be quite frivolous and meaningless. This is because Maya is not cast through external objects or other human beings. It is our own attitudes and thoughts which engulf us into maya and illusion.
