      DISCIPLINE AND ACTION
      COMBINED WITH
      REASON AND NON-ATTACHMENT

      Skilled action is the gift of a disciplined mind, and non-attachment
      is the gift of buddhi yoga, the yoga of pure reason.

      Skilled and disciplined action and non-attachment are separated here
      only to enable one to understand the importance of developing both,
      but actually the two qualities go hand in hand.

      Disciplined action is definitely superior to inept and harmful
      action. This is clear when we examine the fruits of each. Although
      disciplined action brings positive results, one is still not free
      because those results prompt him to do more actions.

      It is not possible through disciplined action alone for one to come
      out of the whirlpool created by his actions and the fruits he
      receives from those actions. Only when disciplined action is combined
      with non-attachment is one free from the bondage of his actions.
