Do you expect to be rewarded?

  • for your dedication to your job?
  • for your devotion to your family?
  • for your hard work?
  • for your unselfishness?
  • for your devotion to God?

Do not expect any reward in the form of

  • money, titles, promotion, authority, power
  • love and respect
  • career success, recognition, fame
  • appreciation
  • enlightenment

Expect beauty!

Beauty is the reward itself.
