मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि। "
'maa karma phala hetur bho' ... do not consider yourself the cause of the fruit of action.
Yesterday in the sanskrit class the teacher gave one more aspect of this priceless verse from the Geeta. Not only is it that we stay humble, realizing that we are not the cause of the result, but also that we do not take on the burdens of the failures, as we are not the cause of the fruit !
When despite best efforts, there is no appearant change, we realize that we are a very very small part of the cosmic plan.
