“Make others happy but do not seek reward”

God is all purity, all honesty and our love for Him should be so honest as not to brook any compromise at all. So whatever you do to help others, to give them happiness, you must not be conscious of having done so. Then you are safe, they are safe; you feel happy, they feel happy. This is very rare. The whole basis of the Gita and Vedanta is selfless service. Make others happy but do not seek reward, do not mind the result, never think of having helped them.
