Karma Yoga as Preparatory to the Practice of Meditation

NIDHI PARKASH's picture



Sri Krishna says in the Bhagavad-Gita:
The Gunas of Prakriti [in the form of the body, the organs and the mind] perform all actions. With the understanding deluded by egoism, a person thinks, 'I am the doer.' But one with true insight into the domains of gunas and karma, knowing that the gunas as senses merely rest on the gunas as objects, does not become attached.

— Bhagavad-Gita
III:27,28

He who performs work resigning it to God, giving up all attachment is not tainted by the results of the work, just as a lotus leaf is not moistened by water [though it grows in water].

Prayer and Meditation

NIDHI PARKASH's picture



That Supreme Being cannot be seen with the eyes. Nor words can express Him. Indeed, none of the senses can actually perceive Him. He cannot be reached by performance of deeds or practice of austerities. Hands cannot grasp Him. Mind fails to comprehend Him. When the mind is purified through the clarity of understanding, then the aspirant realizes Him, the part-less One, through deep meditation.

— Mundaka Upanishad
III: 1.8
