FLOWER AND FRAGRANCE……

…Rules to be followed by a karmayogi (Man of Action)…

Be like the flower and speak through your fragrance of good character and deeds.

Give without any prejudice and doer-ship notion:

Like the flower gives fragrance to all without prejudice, utterly unconscious of its giving.

Give without any prejudice and doer-ship notion:

Like the air, that gives breeze and oxygen to all without prejudice, utterly unconscious of its giving.

Give without any prejudice and doer-ship notion:

Like the sun, that gives light and heat to all without prejudice,
utterly unconscious of its giving.

Give without any prejudice and doer-ship notion:

Like the tree, that gives leaves, flowers, fruits, shade and wood to all without prejudice, utterly unconscious of its giving.

Be like gold, the more it is heated the more it shines and gets purified, becoming ornaments to decorate all without prejudice.

Be like tulasi (basil) leaves, it perfumes the very fingers that crush it.

Be like the sandalwood, which perfumes the very stone on which it is ground to paste and keeps giving its fragrance till its last particle.

Be like lotus, which, though emerges out of muddy water, yet it doesn’t allow even a single drop of that muddy water to stick to it. Similarly, we are born in this world and live in the muddy waters of samsaara (worldly life); like the lotus we can also live by being untouched by the muddy waters of samsaara and without being affected by it.

Be like sugarcane, which, even though, gets crushed and squeezed, yet gives only sweet juice till the last drop, without any trace of bitterness.

…Be so in life as well as in death and thereafter…

Such a one is a real kartrutva abhimaana rahita nishkaama karmayogi (one without doer-ship notion engaged in selfless service).
