Yogendra: "Recently we have been doing the sutras which talk about the actions done under the influence of Kleshas, because of ignorance, or ego, attachment, hatred, selfishness or fears. So if these Kleshas are the base of any of our actions, then these actions are labelled as bad actions and they are going to give you pain. But if we do good actions with proper knowledge, level-headedness, no attachment but understanding our duty with care, compassion and full faith, then these actions would give us happiness.
