“People speak of Nishkaam Karma, action done without the expectation of a reward. But that is very difficult for a human being. “It is a very natural tendency in man to perform his action for the sake of a reward. If a man were told that his action will lead to no result at all or that it will result in a failure, the man will cease to take any interest in the action altogether.
“If your boss told you that you would have to work in his office but that no salary would be paid to you, you would immediately stop working there.
“Since man is selfish by nature, all his actions – karmas – are born out of selfishness and he seeks a reward in everything that he does. Therefore, in this world of today, nishkaam karma is an impossible thing for most people.
“The next is Saihkaam Karma–action done with the expectation of a reward. This is supposed to be of selfish intent, and is the very opposite of Nishkaam Karma. It is the karma that most people perform.
“I would say to you that you should do your karma only to please God. In that way you rise above Nishkaam Karma and Saihkaam Karma, both. And when you accept the result of your action as the Will of God, you see God and only God in the action as well as the result it produces. Action then becomes His Order, and the result His Will.
“Karma uski aagyaa hai, aur phal uski ichhaa hai!”
Shri Bhutt wrote to Shri Nathji:
“Prabhuji, even since I have come to accept everything as a measure of your Will, I find greater peace in writing my judgements that even mahatmas may claim to obtain in their meditations.”
Shri Nathji also said; “There are two kinds of people in the world–those who are in sorrow and those who are in happiness. If you take your misery before those who are in sorrow they shall say to you: ‘We are already in sorrow ourselves. We have no time to listen to your troubles!’ And if you take your misery before those who are in happiness they shall say to you: ‘We are enjoying life. Do not spoil our happiness by telling us of your troubles!’ Who then will listen to your sorrows? Only He who has no sorrows of His own, and who does not wish to enjoy his own happiness! He, who exists in the world for your sake. He, who wipes away your tears when you cry, and whose happiness lies in making you happy!”
“I have come into the world for those who are weak, for those who are helpless, for those who have fallen. I have come to raise them and to clasp them to my heart.”
