O mind, singing devotional songs in congregation or bhajana is an unmitigated farce and fruitless exercise if your thoughts and actions are at avarice.
To entertain at heart avaricious wealth and despicable self-indulgence but externally posing as a great devotee just for fame and name with a pompous display of paraphernalia is rank deceit. That is not bhajana.
