You should get detached from the fruit of work

You should get detached from the fruit of work

The aspiration for the fruit (of your work ) disappears only when you could sacrifice the actual fruit. It is only cheating others and it is only finally self cheating to say that the detachment to the aspiration of fruit is equal to the detachment to the fruit. You are eating the sweet and say that you are detached from the aspiration for the sweet. If you are able to sacrifice the sweet, your detachment to the aspiration of sweet gets proved. Gita clearly says in the beginning itself in the second chapter that you should get detached from the fruit (Phalamtyaktvaa…) and this should not be interpreted as the detachment from the aspiration to the fruit.


Scholars have misinterpreted this as the detachment from the aspiration to the fruit and made the path easy for the incapable spiritual aspirants. This is lowering the level of the absolute truth and thereby making the path easier. By this, the fruit of absolute path is not really achieved. But, an impression is created that you can get the absolute fruit by the lowered easier path. You are getting the post of District Collector through IAS examination only. You will get the post of a clerk by the Group-IV examination. The misinterpretation says that you will get the post of District Collector through Group-IV examination. Now, by such knowledge, people are misled and reward the preachers heavily. The preachers are giving such false knowledge only to get the rewards from the cheated public. The preacher, who preaches the absolute truth is discarded by the public, but such a preacher is immensely rewarded by God. Therefore, the preacher should not misinterpret the knowledge for the sake of public reward.


The absolute truth should be revealed on some day or other to the human being before it dies. The human being should not be kept under disguise throughout its life. In the initial stage, you may encourage the human beings through the misinterpreted knowledge, but you should not keep them under this wrong impression throughout their lives. If the spiritual aspirants is strong with full confidence, you can reveal the absolute truth in the beginning itself. For the sake of encouragement, even if you give the misinterpreted knowledge in the beginning, you should not leave the aspirant. You should watch the aspirant for some time and follow up till the absolute truth is reveled. After revealing the absolute truth, you need not follow the aspirant anymore.
