Work For God


There are five types of dharma, or duties: kula dharma, or duties, relating to one’s occupational group, desa dharma, or duty to the nation, matha dharma, or duty pertaining to one’s religion, gana dharma, or duties relating to society, and aapad dharma, one’s duties when faced with danger.… Dharma protects those who protect dharma.

The true place of dharma is the heart, and what emanates from the heart as a pure idea when translated into action is dharma. Each one has to do the duty that has come upon him, with responsibility, to the best of his ability. There should be complete coordination between what one feels, says and does.

Work is the best form of worship. If you begin to regard duty as God, the ego will disappear. You will acquire a sense of oneness and unity of all life; in other words, you will experience divinity in everything. Do your duty with devotion. Discharge your duties as intelligently and as devotedly as you can; but carry out your duties as if they are acts of worship offered to God, leaving the fruit of those acts to His will, His compassion.

Do not be affected when the results you anticipate are not produced; leave it to Him. He gave you time, space, cause, material, idea, skill, chance and fortune; you did but little of your own. Just do the work. Not for your employers, but for God. Every one must become a worker, a hard worker, a sincere worker and an enthusiastic worker: karmajeevi, a karmayogi. Karmayoga is far superior to karmasanyasa.
