anything that contributes fortifying this nest

Anyway I am giving you an example of having attachment to this live. Really, it is not something as simple as resigning the job, giving up your family, job, possession. Giving up your, I don’t know, gold plated teeth. It is not just as simple as that. Giving up attachment to this life really involves a lot of things. In my case, I have to really watch this hypocrisy. Anything that builds you a nest, comfortable, you have a nest. We are always building nest. Anything that contributes fortifying this nest is attachment to the life. So just because you will shave your hair becoming monk, not necessarily automatically you will end up abandoning attachment to this life. Because the hair and attachment has got nothing much in common. Hair gets without shaving it disappears, it does not mean that attachment disappears.
