Lord Krishna indicated the qualities one should possess to enable them to earn the love of the Lord. In Bhagavad Gita, Krishna declared, desirelessness (Anapeksha) as the first important quality. All sensual pleasures are ephemeral. But most people are content with sensual pleasures. Greater than the sensual is the transcendental path, Shreyo marga, which confers lasting bliss. When you do any action as an offering to God, it gets sanctified. Such an act becomes anapeksha (a desireless act). Every selfless act of devotion becomes an action free from the taint of desire. The second quality is purity (Shuchi). What is required is both internal and external purity. God cares only for Chitta-shuddhi (purity of the mind). The third quality is dhaksha. This means that the devotee should be steadfast and unwavering in any situation. With their mind firmly rooted in God, they should engage themselves in service of others and perform actions in a spirit of detachment.
