so in India when you got married they tied mangalsutra to you mangalsutra means it's a sacred thread if this is properly done what it meant was you create this thread in a certain way if you have forgotten this every year you are supposed to renew this mangalsutra you know this? it's not being done anymore because it's a thick gold chain it was supposed to be either raw cotton thread prepared in a certain way or raw silk thread so that there is a whole science there's a whole way of manipulating one's energies or using one's energies, which is a tantric way where a certain Naadi what's a Naadi we have talked about this as 72,000 Naadis certain Naadi from your system is taken and a certain Naadi from your the betrothed one is taken and the thread is prepared in a certain way and it�s tied to you now the moment you have physical intimacy it's not just the bodies that met two people's energies become like this now you can't break it if you break it you will have to severely damage both the people you have to tear them apart this is how marriages were conducted they got them married when they were very young you know, eight nine eleven years of age they got them married but they tied them up in such a way it never occurred to them that they need to look else where it never occurred to them this may look horrifying for today's mind but I want you to know the stability of that gave them such power that they could focus on their lives to do what they want to do because there's no such thing as emotional insecurity it is a new thing in India there is simply no such thing as an emotional insecurity because there is such a stable bonding not an idea ever occurs in people's mind could my husband be doing something; could my wife be doing something else such a thing never occurs because they have been tied internally in a certain way but that has become just an empty ritual now even now some of the marriages that I have performed, we have done this to people and the level of harmony in them is phenomenal you can see how two people function as one and what a power it is for two people to function just a one being it's an enormous power so somewhere we thought two legs are not so stable four legs are always more stable, so we tied up these two two legs together why we shifted from a bicycle to car, more stable though it takes more space, though it's more expensive though it's more polluting we chose a car to a bicycle because it's more stable you don't have to balance all the time that's why marriage otherwise all the time you have be balancing all the time you have to be seeking something all the time you have to feel insecure about your emotional connections with people around you which won�t leave much of you to focus on what you could do with your life
