The buddha set the standard set of questions to be asked for a prospective monk. Although from a humanistic point of view, one can ask his wife's permission to become a monk, it is not absolutely required from the standard set of questions from prospective monk's perspective. It certainly does not mean that one is authorized to disrespect her without taking her into consideration.
When assessing meditation practice in my lay-life, I found that it is very hard to get time for seclusive retreat. I am specially inclined to the monk's life for its far wide ranging opportunity of seclusion as compared to a lay life. The reason for my interest of becoming a monk is that I have a strong penchant for a reclusive life where one can live his life in seclusion amidst forest and nature with a far wide ranging ability for sense restraints.
There is a DIFFERENCE between being Disenchanted and being averse towards Mundane life. One can be disenchanted and still lead a Mundane life easily following the 8 fold noble path. He can follow the path and do his duty towards his parents and wife. He does not need to leave them alone (wife and parents) just to follow the path.
I have been disenchanted towards mundane life for a fairly long time. That is why I have been following the path for more than 10 years as a lay person attending many meditation retreats, visiting buddha related places, reading dhamma books since I first heard the teaching. I simply understand there can not be love for both life: Mudane life and reclusive life. I have to choose one at a single time.
I am not leaving them alone as there will be wife and parents in my family
Just I will be alone.
Buddha was justified to leave behind his wife and children because someone had to Rediscover the path. The poster has no such lofty goals. He merely has to follow the path.
You mean "sangha", community of monks are not justified, as they merely has to follow the path?
