Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.113
The Master Said:
"Perform your duties in an unselfish spirit.
Always try to perform your duties without desiring any result.
All, without exception, perform work.
Even to chant the name and glories of God is work,
as is the meditation of the non-dualist on 'I am He'.
Breathing is also an activity. There is no way of renouncing
work altogether. So do your work, but surrender the result to God."
