Maharaj Parikshit gave up everything for service of Krsna

So Maharaj Parikshit lived such a wonderful, wonderful, life as a husband, a father and a king but then he was cursed to die within 7 days, that is very less time, today is Sunday, if you were to get this curse that means by next Saturday you have to give up everything, it is not much notice, these days if you want to give up your job you have to give your boss 6 months notice because they have to prepare everything in your absence. But he had 7 days, what kind of job did he have, but he wasn’t the slightest attached, he understood this is all for Krsna - my wife, my children, my everything Krsna will protect them what do I have to fear, what do I have to worry, I have offered them to Him. And then he showed, he had no material attachment to anything; he had no attachment to anyone except for what it to be useful for the pleasure of Krsna; for the services of Krsna. So here the most difficult thing to do, Maharaj Parikshit very easily accomplished, he completely left behind everything with no regret, with no fear, with no attachment and he was preparing himself even to give up his own physical body which is so dear to us, with no attachment at all. How? Because he was a bhakta, because he wanted to engage in Krsna’s service and because he was Krsna conscious by the process of hearing and chanting the glories of the Lord.
