Karmanyevadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachan | Ma karmaphalaheturbhoorma te sangostvakarmani || Yoga sthah kuru karmani sangamtyaktva Dhananjaya | Siddhyasiddhyoh samo bhootva samatvam yoga uchyate ||
(II 47, 48)
(Thou hast a right to action, but only to action, never to its fruits; let not the fruits of thy works be thy motive, neither let there be in thee any attachment to inactivity. Fixed in yoga do thy actions, having abandoned attachment, having become equal in failure and success, O Dhananjaya, for it is equality that is meant by yoga .)
“Adoption of spirituality with scientific attitude in personal life is required today. In the ancient times the sages (rishis) of
our country used to be engaged like scientists to decipher the truth of
the universe, truth of nature, truth of life through experiments in
spirituality . Whenever required, they also used to teach spiritual
philosophy to give direction to social and cultural development of
mankind.” While expressing these views Dr. Raja Ramanna got engrossed
deeply in his thoughts. He was speaking at a youth convention organized
by Ramakrishna Mission in its main campus of Belur Matha in 1985.
