Bhagavad Gita Rubaiyat, part XXIV

Arjuna asked: Of those who set aside
Those rules and laws by scripture codified,
Yet with devotion make their sacrifice,
What is their worship—false, or sanctified?

The Blessed Lord said: Here the only test
Is in the quality of faith expressed,
Rajasic, sattwic or tamasic rites
Are to their own degrees both judged and blessed.

A sacrifice to God is ne’er in vain
If done without desire for private gain,
But offered up with love and firm belief—
This one from Me all blessings shall obtain.
