Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- The Motive Behind the Action
"Yoga is perfection in action. It's a bit difficult
to say what is perfect and what is imperfect, but
the result of the action will tell you whether it
is a perfect action or not. If the result of that
action brings benefit to all people involved with
itto the person who performs the action and to the
person who enjoys the benefit of the actionwithout
bringing harm to anybody, then it's a perfect action.
If the action is going to bring harm even to one
individual or if it's going to build up tension in
your own mind, then it's not a perfect action. It's
the motive behind the action and the result of the
action that will decide whether an action is perfect
"God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
