As per Ramarcharitamanas, the home of Kakabhusundi was in the Himalayas. When Lord Ram was born on earth, he came to Ayodhya to witness the child form of Bhagavan Ram. Child form of Rama was his desired deity.

Kakabhusundi took several births before finally he got human form. He roamed in the hermitages of various Rishis seeking knowledge. Once he reached the ashrama of Lomasa Rishi who taught him the principles of nirguna Brahman (God without form and attributes).

Lomasa Rishi regretted cursing his student and taught him the principles of Saguna Brahman…

Freedom from all attachments is essential for union with God – Sadhu Vaswani

Freedom from all attachments is essential for union with God. The jiva must renounce attachment to money, possession, property, attachment to house, family, country, must renounce all earthly affection.

Private affections and preferences imprison the jiva.

Not merely must we resist running after vishayas, sense objects: we must have no relish for them. The will-to-live in God means the will to possess nothing, to have nothing, to be nothing. In being nothing, is the greatest blessing of the jiva.
Detachment is a sacrificial act: detachment means surrender of the little self. You may renounce wealth and comfort: but you do not practice detachment until you renounce the “ego.”
– Sadhu Vaswani
