"Actions that bind include all activity in relation to exterior objects. Such actions are usually resorted to with a desire for results. This craving for results leads one to the morass of “I” and “Mine” and the demon of lust and greed. If one follows this path, there will be sudden flares, as when clarified butter (ghee) is poured in the sacrificial fire! Assigning priority to sense objects (vishaya) is the same as assigning importance to poison (visha)! But while engaged in those activities and in those sense objects, if one has no interest in results or consequences, then not only can one be victorious over the feelings of “I” and “mine”, greed and lust, one can also be far away from all such traits! One will never be troubled by such traits. Liberating action is pure, faultless, unselfish, and unswerving. Its characteristic is the importance given to the idea of action without any desire of the fruits thereof (Nishkama karma), as elaborated in the Gita"
