THOUGHT FOR THE DAY OUR MOST BELOVED BHAGAWAN’S DIVINE MESSAGE

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
OUR MOST BELOVED BHAGAWAN’S DIVINE MESSAGE
The master of the house makes all the
elaborate arrangements for a marriage in the
family. He plans meticulously for the wedding
ceremony, the reception, the menu, the
illumination, the music, the decoration, etc..
These are very exciting when they are being
planned and even while they are executed.
But in the end when the bills arrive, will the
master still be happy? In quite a few places,
after the event is done, there may even be
angst, disgust and grief. Isn’t it known from
such experience that there is more joy in the
actual doing than in the result that accrues. So
it must be easy to discard the fruits of action,
provided you spend some thought on the
process of karma(performing action), and the worth of its fruit. (Divine Discourse, Jul 10, 1959.)
