Does Kunti also have bonds with money and children?

[Smt. Sudha Rani asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, Thank You Swami for granting peace in my life. Please remove my ignorance for these questions. Kunti does not seem to have putreshana and dhanesana since she accompanied the cunning King Dhritarashtra and Gandhari in her old age leaving her sons and palace. What is this bond called? How to overcome it?

Swami replied:- In the old age, she left the palace and her sons because at least in the old age, the soul shall turn towards God. She was a very good devotee of the contemporary human incarnation, called God Krishna. Of course, she had some blind fascination for the blind couple (Dhritarashtra and Gandhari), which made her to follow the couple to the forest. Her main idea was that since the couple was blind, she must help the couple in the last spiritual journey. The final conclusion about her at the end of the overall analysis of her life is that she was in the correct path of spiritual journey blessed by God Krishna.
