The highest liberation is neither driving for rewards nor getting driven.

Madurai Aadheenam 27th June 2012: His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda is one of the world’s 100 most spiritually influential personalities and the most watched Guru on internet and is also the recently coronated pontiff of the oldest and most ancient Hindu Organization - the Madurai Aadheenam.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda translated the Bhagavad Gita verse 12 from Chapter 5 by saying, “One who has had the spiritual experience, having given up reward for performance gains highest tranquility. But one who has not had the spiritual experience, acting on his own free will, clinging on to his own reward becomes bound.”

He said, “The moment I looked at this verse, I could see the reason for me having the highest tranquility. There was no clinging to the reward for the performance. Only one quality which is responsible for my peace and joy still, and my ability to continue my activities in life, is the tranquility. Why the tranquility, because there is no reward for my performance. I am not bound. I am not clinging to the reward for my performance.

I don’t need reward for my performance. I tell you clinging to reward takes away the life from us. It is like us handing over our decision making authority to others. Does anyone want to hand over their decision making to others and one’s inner freedom to others.”

His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda elaborated saying, “Clinging for reward is nothing but handing over our reins to others, psychologically becoming slave of others. Our original thought flow is destroyed to the very core, to the very source. Man who pays the piper decides the tune. The man from whom one expects the reward, they drive the tune in which way one is going to dance.

Becoming bound, entangled that is the greatest suffering any human being can carry. Decide not to get rewarded by anyone who is expecting rewards in their life. Just decide, not to beg from beggars or a person who is also expecting reward from others.

As long as one has the attachment to reward for performance their life is going to be miserable. When human beings give up the reward for performance, when the tranquility happens in them, they achieve the highest tranquility and peace. This is the last attachment human beings suffer with, which is the pattern of clinging to rewards from others. Anybody we expect reward from, will start driving us. The highest liberation is neither driving for rewards nor getting driven.”

Paramahamsa Nithyananda encouraged everyone to make it a habit to read a few spiritual sacred secrets before going to bed. He said , “When I read this Bhagavad Gita sutra, I felt reading a few Bhagavad Gita verses before going to bed should become a compulsory habit for every human being. Reading few pages of any sacred secrets before going to bed enriches the way one carries himself or herself the whole day. One needs to be reminded again and again of these supreme truths as the highest form of spiritual practice, because forgetfulness is the quality of the mind.”
