Attachment

HARIH  OM 

The  Gita  revisited.
Attachment 

                      The  Gita   teaches  us  that  yajna,  dana  and  tapas   should  be  performed  without attachments  and   the  anxiety  for  the  enjoyment  of  the  fruits  of  actions. . Attachment  refers  to  the  ego centric  personality  which  comes  to work  in .any  field  with its  own  ego centric  desires. When  it   comes  to fulfill  its   desires  ,it  any  field  with  its  own  egocentric  desires. it   comes  to maintain  a  certain  relationship  with  the  world  of   objects  and  beings  ,then   such  a relationship  is  called  attachment. .Once  the  individual  develops  attachment  , it  puts a  strain  on  him  as  well  as  on  others ,wounding  them  and  making them  useless. . The  individual  developing  attachment   comes  to  have  unintelligent  self  destructive  anxiety  for  the  fruits  of  actions. . This  hinders  in the  performance  of  actions  to  one's  best  potential. 

                     So  Krishna  emphasises  that  yajna  ,dana  and  tapa   are  to  be  performed  in an  attitude  of  detachment   renouncing  all  anxieties  for  the  fruits  of  actions. . This  detachment  will  help  the  individual  to  perform  the  work  better   , right  in the  present. . When  detachment  takes  place  it  leads  to a  greater  experience  of  joy. . A  bud  abandons  itself  to become  a flower  , the  flower  gives  up its  soft  petals  to  become  a  fruit  . The  abandonment  discussed  in  the  Gita  is  a  subjective  renunciation  of  all  inner  selfishness  and  desires. . It  is  not  abandoning  one's  actions   but  the  tyaga  of  such  things  that  block  the  free  flow  of   the  individual's   inner  spiritual  growth.
