====Real Devotion to God====

There are three types of devotion in the case devotees of Pravrutti and Nivrutti: i) Prostitute type: Devotees try to get practical benefits from God in exchange for their theoretical devotion like prayers and songs. ii) Business type: Exchange of theoretical fruit like intelligence etc., for theoretical devotion and exchange of practical fruit for practical sacrifice. iii) Nivrutti type: There is no aspiration of any fruit from God for their sacrifice. In Nivrutti, the practical fruit is got for the practical service as above, but, there is no qualitative and quantitative equality in the exchange since this is not business at all. It is only based on the requirement of devotee. A son brings his salary and gives to his mother. His mother serves him with the food and other facilities without the account since there is no aspiration for fruit on either side. Hanuman (Nivrutti) used Himself in the service of God without any fruit in return and became God by having several temples. Arjuna (Pravrutti) used God for his work and hence no temple is there for Arjuna. The practical service to God is in two ways: i) Karma samnyasa or sacrifice of work and ii) Karmaphala tyaga or sacrifice of fruit of work (money). A saint can do first type only whereas the house holder can do both. Money is matter and work is energy. Since both are inter-convertible, service (work) and sacrifice (fruit of work) in any way is one and the same as per the convenience. You are doing both types for your worldly bonds and give at least equal place to God in the first stage.
