Many people consider all acts of worship, puja, etc., as 'His' and all sets of earning and spending as 'Mine'. But, this is a mistake. All acts are 'His'. There is no such distinction as Manavakarma and Madhavakarma; all karma leads you towards Madhava or away from Him. For example, you say that you fall ill, that you are in good health, etc. That is because you feel that the body is 'you', whereas you are really only the Atma, with the five sheaths which you have superimposed on it. This is the result of the system of education now prevalent which teaches that the ananda one derives from the senses is all the ananda that one can get, that one needs get. It does not disclose to the individual the eternal source of ananda that he has within himself.
