We should not do our duty with the motive of purchasing shares in the other world – Dr S Radhakrishnan

The Upanishads condemn the rites and sacrifices performed with the sole idea of bringing about large returns of outward good either in this world or in the next. We should not do our duty with the motive of purchasing shares in the other world or opening a bank account with God.
Desire as such is not forbidden. It all depends upon the object. If a man’s desire is the flesh, he becomes an adulterer; if things of beauty, an artist; if God, a saint.
Though everything else is taken away from him, though he has to walk the streets, cold, hungry and alone, he shall yet be able to go his way with a smile on his lips for he has gained inward freedom.
We must work with a perfect serenity indifferent to the results. He who acts by virtue of an inner law is on a higher level than one whose action is dictated by his whims.
Dr . S Radhakrishnan
