When you do work even in world, concentrate on the work only and never think about the fruit. This means all your energy is spent in work only and not even a trace of energy is spent in thinking or in excitation about fruit. This is based on the law of Thermodynamics (Q=E W). Q is the energy supplied to the system (energy available in your body for work). E is the rise in internal energy (thinking and excitation about fruit). W is the work done by the system (by your brain and body). When you are detached from fruit E=0 and then Q=W. This means, all your energy is spent for work only and no trace of energy is spent in raising your tension (internal energy) for fruit. In this way, you will succeed in achieving the fruit since you have put all your effort on work only.
I give a good example of this concept, which is the student attending the examination. Due to attachment to fruit of pass, excitation results and all the energy supplied to the student (by the food already taken and digested) is spent in the excitation so that Q (energy supplied) = E (energy spent in tension). Now, there is no energy left over for work (W). Now, the brain can’t work to remember the answers, which were well studied in the previous night only. The answers were stored well in memory (Chittam), but, there is no power to display the information from memory, just like the case of computer with information disk, but, not working due to lack of electric power! If the attachment for fruit is cut, there is no tension regarding pass or failure, E = 0 and Q = W. The answer, which was heard long back in the class, also gets displayed!
How to detach from fruit? If you think that fruit is given by God and not by your work, then you will be detached from tension about fruit. You may doubt that you may get detached from work also due to this discouragement. It need not happen so, because God will not give any fruit to a lazy person without doing work. Hence, you must concentrate on work without tension for fruit (Maa Phaleshu Kadaachana… Gita). In this way, you are sure to achieve all the worldly fruits by concentrating on work and detaching from fruit. This detachment from fruit should also continue even after achieving the fruit because the fruit of your work should be dedicated to God, the real giver of fruits. This is called as Karmaphala Tyaga in which you have to always maintain concentration on work and detachment for fruit. The detachment for fruit is not meant for achieving the fruit successfully as explained above, whereas it is for sacrificing the fruit to God. You are adapting this technique till you achieve the fruit (money) and then forgetting this clue so that you can avoid sacrifice of fruit to God. The reason for this is your fascination for yourself and for your family. As the fascination is diverted to God, the fruit of work also gets diverted to God.
