For a person living in the materialistic world, the sensual pleasures are a source of extreme delight. However, the senses themselves are temporary, and hence grant only transitory joy. To a person suffering from jaundice, everything looks yellow and tastes bitter. So too senses fraught with illness cannot give true happiness. As there is no person without desire, and it is difficult to live without desire in this world, Lord Krishna came out with an excellent solution. He said, “Perform all actions for the pleasure of the Lord without an eye on the fruits of the action.” We should pay our respect to duty and dedicate all actions to the Divine. We must ensure that we do all actions to the satisfaction of our conscience and then our heart is free from all blemishes. Such an action qualifies to become an act of Anapeksha, not tainted by desire.
