Can non attachment be used as an excuse?

Can non-attachment be used as an excuse?


Dr. Amitava Ghosh commented on facebook:

"Our Ego/Desire complex is so subtle that,it may penetrate either of the situations and keep us ATTACHED. PRAGNA state keeps us free and is a counteractive force to recon with"

And Dr. Chosh is right when he says that.  Whatever that "pragna state" is, it does keep us free


However, non attachment can be used as an exuse as well.  This happens more often in certain circles than we can comprehend.  I do not want to be judgemental, yet the point needs to be made.  

Buddha left his wife Yasodhara and son Rahul when he left his Kingdom in persuit of his own interest.  Is it selfish of Buddha to do that?  Answer depends on who you ask the question to?  Yet, this was truely a persuit.  Buddha did not use his interest as an excuse.  He really had the interest and he did persue his goal.  Many of us working parnets are not able to give much time to our children or spouse while persuing our academic or business interest. This is not so dissimilar to what Buddha did; yet it is different in the direction he took.

However, it is true that our minds can play trics.  It is easy to hide in the shadows of "non attachment" and not fulfill our obligations and responsibilities.  Krishna does not want that to happen.  He would not even do what Buddha did.  He is a strong proponebt of a "Karma yogi" who lives in the real world and grows.  Yet, Krishna respects Karma sanyasins who renonce the world and grow (i.e Buddha above), but is totally opposed to either of them using their stand as an excuse.
