Leaving the house for the propagation of knowledge and devotion should be done on the command of God only

When the person is totally absorbed in God, even the surrounding atmosphere of the family cannot disturb him in anyway as in the case of Janaka ( a great devotee). Such person may even leave the family like Shankara and Buddha (previous human incarnations) for the propagation of spiritual knowledge and devotion in the world on the order of God. Such exit is designed in the divine program and cannot be taken as a step in the spiritual effort (Sadhana) of a human being. Shankara and Buddha are human incarnations of God (Siddhas) and they are not to be compared with the spiritual aspirants (Sadhakas).
