I have been reading books published by ISKCON, a spiritual organization, and I constantly come across the term fruitive mentality. It is supposed to be the tendency to always seek personal gain, and to want to enjoy the fruits of one's actions, in a materialistic manner - the word has a definite negative connotation.
Here are some examples of the phrase's usage-
We all have fruitive mentality. We invariably seek profit, adoration and distinction. We are thus attached to work for selfish motives
Because karmic reactions are result of fruitive mentality, one who acts out of duty, free from the desire to enjoy the fruits of his action, is untouched by karma (link)
Fruitive is more than just self-centered, as there is the added meaning of doing something in order to enjoy the fruits of the action, as opposed to say, doing work out of a sense of duty. To clarify, a fruitive mentality is more like a materialistic mentality, with the intent of enjoying worldly pleasures - whether by fair or unfair means. The person has no sense of sacrifice or compassion and is only ever concerned about his/her own enjoyment. It is definitely a moral judgement and is a negative one, made from a perfect higher ground
So, what could be a one-word replacement for 'fruitive' in 'fruitive mentality'?
