It is of the utmost importance that desire is thoroughly subdued…..!!!

Sings Sri Krishna in Bhagavad Gita:

त्रैविद्या मां सोमपाः पूतपापा
यज्ञैरिष्ट्वा स्वर्गतिं प्रार्थयन्ते।
ते पुण्यमासाद्य सुरेन्द्रलोकं
अश्नन्ति दिव्यान्दिवि देवभोगान्॥

traividyā mām somapāh pūtapāpā
yajñairistvā svargatim prārthayante
te punyamāsādya surendralokam
aśnanti divyāndivi devabhogān

“Men who do pious deeds enjoined by the three Ved, who have tasted nectar and
freed themselves from sin, and who wish for heavenly existence
through worshiping me by yagya, go to heaven
enjoy godly pleasures as a reward for their virtuous acts.”

Although they practise all the three parts of worship-
prayer (Rig), equal conduct (Sam), and union (Yajur),
partake of the dim light of the moon (Rayi, the form-giving substance),
rid themselves of sin, and worship God by the prescribed mode of yagya,
such men pray for the attainment of heaven because of which they are rewarded
with mortality and have to be reborn.

They worship him and also adopt the appointed mode,
but they beseech for heavenly joys in return.
So rewarded for their piety they go to the abode of Indr
enjoy the celestial pleasures.God is thus also the provider of these pleasures.

And further:

ते तं भुक्त्वा स्वर्गलोकं विशालं
क्षीणे पुण्ये मर्त्यलोकं विशन्ति।
एवं त्रयीधर्ममनुप्रपन्ना
गतागतं कामकामा लभन्ते॥

te tam bhuktvā svargalokam viśālam
ksīne punye martyalokam viśanti
evam trayīdharmamanuprapannā
gatāgatam kāmakāmā labhante

“With the gradual wearing out of the merits of their piety,
they go back to the mortal world after enjoying the pleasures of great heaven
it is thus that they who seek refuge in the desire-oriented action prescribed by
the three Ved and covet joy
are condemned to repeated death and birth.”

The yagya they perform as well as its threefold means, prayer, evenness of mind,
dedication that unites, is the same, and they also seek refuge in God,
but they have to undergo rebirth because of their desires.
So it is of the utmost importance that desire is thoroughly subdued.
