MEDITATION IS RIGHT ACTION: September 19, 2018

“It is important to understand that Krishna,
who has repeatedly stressed the importance
of right action over non-action,
also recommends to Arjuna
here the apparent ‘non-action’
of meditation.

Obviously, he is saying that meditation,
too, is a kind of ‘right’ action.

An important saying in the Indian
scriptures is: ‘When a duty conflicts
with a higher duty, it ceases to be a duty.’

That rarely accomplished yogi
who is able to sit in deep meditation
during all the hours
when he is not performing
necessary bodily functions—
eating, sleeping, taking a little exercise, etc.—
is fulfilling that ‘higher duty’
which precludes the necessity
for engaging in any other activity.”

Paramhansa Yogananda, from The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita
