What should be our attitude in daily living, during festivals, snow, rain or shine? Bhagawan lovingly answers for us today.
Devotion should not be a part-time exercise. It should be present all the time, through joy or sorrow, pleasure or pain. “Satatam Yoginah,” declares the Gita. The yogis are in constant communion with God. To be yogis (aspirants) in the morning, bhogis (lovers of food) at noon and rogis (victims of diseases) in the evening are the ways of men today. The true devotee is immersed in the Lord all the time and performs all actions as offerings to the Lord. Any action you do, as a teacher or a student or an employee, when you do it in the name of the Lord, it becomes a pious offering. This is the easiest way to sublimate the mind. When you consider your body as a gift from God, you will not do any sinful act. When you consider your wealth as a gift from God you will not misuse it. You will make the right use of it. Likewise, when you regard all your talents as endowed by God, you will use them in the service of the Divine.
