Everyone has got asakti. Asakti means attachment, this material attachment. Too much attachment for material enjoyment is a disqualification for spiritual life. The western world is trained up for being too much attached to material enjoyment, therefore they are lagging behind in spiritual life. When one gives up material attachments and surrenders unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead then one achieves success in life. This is pure bhakti-yoga, which involves vairagya-vidya - renunciation and knowledge.
