Hidden agendas.

I have noticed that I will have some material attachment that will motivate me to do devotional service from time to time.


So I was thinking after I chanted today that there wasn't any mixed motive in spending that two hours chanting. I mean, there really isn't any material benefit that motivates me to chant. Perhaps if I did it in the mountains and people saw me and "oh,that sadhu is austere, let me give him some donation", then perhaps there could be. Essentially it is the desire to purify my contaminated senses.


So as long as I can chant whole heartedly and not spaced out, perhaps these other material attachments will eventually subside, leaving there to be 'nothing to it, but to do it.'
