Selflessness or Nishkamta :


Selflessness or Nishkamta :

Selflessness or Nishkamta is a very important point in Bhakti or Devotion. Generally people who perform Bhakti are not Nishkaam i.e. their devotion is not devoid of material desires. People pray to God for attainment of material objects-fame, wealth, son, good job etc. In many famous temples, people make big donations.

Why? To get their wish or ‘mannat’ fulfilled. Why should there be a ‘mannat’? We are supposed to abandon love of material possessions to love God whole-heartedly. Instead we pray to God to get more material pleasures! Isn’t this shear insanity? Who would ask for shoes standing in a sweet shop? If he does, wouldn’t he be considered insane.

God is the ocean of bliss. And you are asking Him for material gratifications, which will give you nothing other than misery. You are asking for misery standing at the doorsteps of personified bliss.

“Shri Krishna said: Just fix your mind upon Me and engage all your intelligence in Me. Thus you will live in Me always, without a doubt.”

“Realizing the Grace of God and Guru, be grateful to them all the time and try to shed tears”

“We never know when our life (body) is coming to an end. Hence, keep thinking about God all the time. Never ever forget Him”

” Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open ? “

“Every auspicious action should be performed with humility and while constantly remembering that God alone is our all‐in‐all.”

“Unless Shri Krishna Himself comes and wipes your tears with His own Pitambar, consider your ‘Sadhna’ as hypocritical”

“This world is a poisonous tree bearing poisonous fruits and the Guru is a never ending source of nectar”

“ Spiritual practice is possible only under the guidance of a True Saint or Master ”

“The way to achieve fearlessness is to become detached. That is also the science of work. Do your duty, but be detached from the results”

“Always Retain The Thought Of Hari-Guru In Your Mind And Heart”
