3.8 Action is greater than inaction, perform therefore thy task in life. The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 3)


We must act. Contemplation, meditation and day-dreaming is all good; nothing beats action, says God in the Gita.

thy task

Action to what end? That surely is the million Dollar (trillion?) question! Busy action doesn’t help, targeted action and of the right kind, certainly does. The action we choose, in my opinion, should ideally result in the highest good for everyone involved. ‘Perform thy task’, says God, what is my task for today and for the lifetime? What is my Life Purpose?

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM action itself.
