The mind is only one and you can only engage it in one place at a time. If you engage it in the material world, be it in your father, mother, brother, wife, wealth, name or fame then simultaneously, you cannot engage it in devotion of God. You can continue reading spiritual books, performing japa, singing devotional songs, and so on, but with your mind attached to the mayic world, all these practices will be fruitless. So long as you are not detached from the world, how can your mind be attached to God?
