The Secret of Right Action

Nayaswami Parvati
May 11, 2014

One of the most important teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, Nayaswami Parvati says, is that we need to balance the spirit of work and the spirit of meditation — so that when we work, and when we meditate, we are experiencing the presence of God.

Parvati shares stories from her own life: serving at the market at Ananda Village, working at a rice-drying facility, and acting as Swami Kriyananda's secretary, to illustrate how one can remember God while engaged on this physical plane.

It may sometimes be challenging, she says, but it is a requirement for Self-realization.
