If one leaves the family for the sake of self attainment (not for God’s service) whether that act is justified?

Self is already attained by self. If you are self, you have already attained yourself. If you are the inert body, then also the body contains self and self is attained by the body. Self-attainment means realizing that you are the self (pure awareness) and not the body. You can attain this in one minute. Trying to continue in the state of self-realization is meditation of self, which is also very easy if you sit alone. What is the use of leaving house for this? If you have recognized the Satguru, then only there is some meaning in any sacrifice.
