In the mothers womb the being was unaware of the materialistic world and through Simran his heart was absorbed in his creator – but on taking birth into the materialistic world, the doubts of `me-mine’ state captured him and severed the link with his creator. In this way man through wrong company becomes absorbed in the doubt ridden ego state.

2 For 10 months He kept you in mother’s womb and on birth,materialism got attached to you”.  481

3 He comes out of the mother’s womb and forgetting his Lord attaches his mind to the world  1007

In this way, man under the influence of wrong company abandons the simran of

  • make wishes
  • make plans
  • make effort
  • struggle
  • toil
