Purity of actions – No calculations or greed in bhakti –
Always feel gratitude for all that has been given to you. Value it and share it with some who may need it and do not have it. Giving of anything – feelings or gifts in kind should be an act complete in itself. The moment you begin to expect something in return, the purity of the action is lost and karmically nothing is gained. This holds directly to God also. We give Him a lot in terms of maybe chadava (offerings), mantra jap (chantings), havans (fire offerings), vrat (fasting), sewa (ritualistic worship), daan (charity), teerth (pilgrimage) etc…What do we hold in our thoughts and hearts as we perform this karma? Is not there always a continuous counting and calculation going on in our mind?
I did this – I will get that
I offered so much – I will receive so much back
I did puja, pilgrimage – my punya has increased – my next birth will be better
I did daan, dharm (religious charity) – I have cancelled my paap or negative karma, so I become purer
I did some parikrama – I collect xyz points in my list of punya
I will now escape hell and reach heaven
Till this calculation of adding punya does not go away; one will not be purified enough to get closer to God. Of course, the punya karta’s position will be better then the rest of the humans who do not indulge in this sewa also. But it will hardly provide any closeness to God; your intentions get you the results; God stays away till the time you begin to offer your actions and the fruit of these actions; totally at His lotus feet.
Despite God standing there, over flowing with His Divine Love and Bliss He is helpless.
We as humans are not able to follow the Holy Gita in the right manner towards the path of unmotivated karmas – actions. Our greed from the outer dimensions is never satisfied and we keep on moving in circles on the outer zero – cheating ourselves in this process.
As soon as our gifts – in any form are only with bhao for Thakurjee the initial connection with Him gets established. Purity levels increase as you surrender all in His name and bhao. That is true religion and dharma——
To work for Thakurjee
To give Him joy.
To offer ourselves totally in His service.
To become the mediator for Him to enable Him to enter the outer dimensions and spread around.

I have rare pleasure of meeting some souls who are inclined to change their religion for reason that :
” waha se response fast milega ”
Bhakti requires only Bhao!
