Source: Gratitude in all situations
Krsna tells us in the Gita, that our real happiness should not be in the results of what we do, but in the quality of the consciousness in which we do it. Krishna tells Arjuna do not be attached to victory or defeat, success or failure, pleasure or pain, honor and dishonor, be attached to dharma. The Highest dharma is bhakti. yat karoṣi yad aśnāsi, yaj juhoṣi dadāsi yat , Whatever you do, do it for my pleasure, Krsna says. It is our devotion that pleases Krsna. Krsna does not care anything for things. He is concerned about our love and devotion. Krsna sees the intent. Anything that satisfies us is the love and devotion. The value of anything is the love with which it is offered. The material value of things does not satisfy us.
