Not getting attached to a Lord like Nitai is a sin. If you don’t get attached to any other Lord then that is not a sin. But after knowing how merciful Nitai is, it is a mega sin to not get attached to Him. He is the Lord who is ready to give away Himself to everyone. He is the one who is ever ready to overlook our millions of mistakes, fall downs, and offenses. He is the one who is always eager to end our miserable existence in this material world and take us to the plane of our highest fulfillment. No other Lord has shown such munificence ever. If we don’t value this highest mercy then how will we be ever able to embrace auspiciousness? If we are not modest enough to accept that we are so degraded that only Nitai, the Lord of Forgiveness, can deliver us, then what hope is left for us. Will our pride and ignorant overconfidence in our abilities save us from repeated birth and death? What kind of wisdom is it to not catch the lotus feet of Nitai, the shade of whose feet will give instant coolness to our burning heart? What greater foolishness is there in this world than to neglect the only source of light in a realm of horrifying darkness? All those who know about Nitai and don’t feel like getting attached to Him are indeed very sinful. And sinful souls can never attain perfection. They can never reach the Kingdom of God. In short, their lives are wasted.
