Work with Devotion

पत्रं पुष्पं फलं तोयं यो मे भक्त्या प्रयच्छति।
तदहं भक्त्युपहृतमश्नामि प्रयतात्मना।।९.२६।।

A responsible leader is not concerned about the quantity of the results given by participants. For him the quality of the devotion to work is much more important.

Devotion and skill are two requirements for any work to be completed successfully. When skill is there without devotion, it is not an offering. When devotion is there, any skill can be acquired.
Skill without devotion is like selling one's ability for a price.

Devotion without skill is like intention without extension.
Work with devotion and skill is an excellent and exemplary work.
Work without devotion and skill is poor work.
Such work is an offering. So whatever work one does, whether small or big, whether samskar varga, or Yoga varga, or Swadhyay Varga or Kendra Varga or work in kitchen or in office or in garden or of meeting people or raising of funds, when  one does it with full, single minded devotion, it results into offering.
The responsible leader accepts the results of that work with total love and thankfulness. When the participant is always devoted the responsible leader is always ready to accept the outcome whatever it may be, with love, trust and complete satisfaction. Intentions are important and not just consequences, for the responsible leader.
