Haiku #36

The action done for

God is Renunciation,

Say philosophers…


Giving up the fruits of

Karma, know this as Tyag,

Says the sagacious… // 18 – 2 //

We want to renunciate this world. Run away from it. Leave everything behind and just think about ourselves (Cause how many think about their souls is a big question in itself). But here Bhagwaan draws a clear line between sanyas (renunciation) and tyaag (giving up).

(Sagacious = learned, astute, prudent)

But we would love to do what is easy for us! Which has less pain! As our minds have become numb. In these tough times, we come up with easy things that we like and then give a nice dressing (covering) to our actions. But will we understand the essence of these two words as explained by the Yogeshwar? Will we shed our inhibitions and attitude and learn? Let’s learn.

The shlok for your reference :
काम्यानां कर्मणां न्यासं सन्न्यासं कवयो विदु:
सर्वकर्मफलत्यागं प्राहुस्त्यागं विचक्षणा: ।।
The Supreme Divine Personality said : Giving up of actions motivated by desire is what the wise understand as sanyās. Relinquishing the fruits of all actions is what the learned declare to be tyāg.

    तदर्थं कर्म कौन्तेय मुक्तसङ्गः समाचर ॥३- ९॥

    Work other than those done as a selfless service (Seva) binds human beings.
