Dear Shubhraji, After enlightenment, when the physical world looks like dreamworld (so to say), what can be the motivation of a person to work in this dreamworld. Why should he/she bother about sustaining the body at all. Krishna apparently implies that such person has no specific motivation in BG 3.18. Please share your views if possible. Regards, Manish.

Hari Om. First of all the world they say ‘looks like’ a dreamworld. We really don’t know frst hand what is the experience after realization. A relevant thought – so i hope after reading this you will be motivated to ‘go’ for realization!!!!:)

All masters who have recorded their state of being have been living and in the body. So the only reason woudl be to live thereafter in a complete experience of being One with everything ( supported by the scripture Gita and Upanishad in various verses) – and in that state the motivation is love and service for the welfare of the world. So Bhagavad Gita 3:18 also points towards renunciation of any selfish motivation and only for selfless love towards the world. There can be no other reason – when you love someone you want to share your joy and support them! When you love ALL then you operate at the level of total identification with the Lord and for loka- hith (welfare of people).!
