nimittamatram

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||


The Lord says, 'Maya eve ete nihatah purvam— these people are already destroyed by Me.' This is significant. By the Lord as kala, the one who presides over the law of karma, they are already destroyed. The time has come. Thus the Lord says, 'Be merely an instrument, O! Savyasachin! nimittamatram bhav .' When a fruit is fully ripe, if it falls in the wake of a gust of wind, that wind is only an instrument, nimittamatram. The fruit was already ready to fall.

Mananeeya Eknathji impresses the glory of working as an instrument in the hands of God. He is the real doer. He allows us to do the work. And doing is naturally going to bring you the feeling that you have done it. Kartaham iti manyase. Eknathji says, here we have to be always aware, conscious  and remember that it is God who has given me this chance to do the work. Be His instrument. Do everything for His sake, on His behalf.
