Detachment - an essential subject
One takes to spiritual matters when one realizes that there is more to this world than just what we can physically see and comprehend. In order for one to even reach this stage, one needs God's mercy. After reading scriptures and obtaining the transcendental knowledge from them, one should be able to understand that detachment from worldly affairs and attachment to spirituality (devotional service to Lord Krishna and guru) is the only way that one can progress spiritually, and ultimately achieve his goal of going back home, back to Godhead. Therefore, the key is total detachment from this material world.
