III: 10

Chapter 3, Verse 10

“The Lord of creation formed worship
Together with humanity, and said,
‘By worship you will always be fruitful.
Duty well done fulfills desire.’”

Swami Satchidananda:

“Let your life be worship, Yajna, from sunup to sundown and from sundown to sunup. Worship is the law of life. This is said only to humankind because all of the other species unconsciously do it naturally. Everything in this creation exists to be used by others. Only self-absorbed humans live for themselves; all the rest live to be used by others, under the direct guidance of nature’s law. The entire world is an altar of worship. Make the whole life an offering. That’s Yajna.”

[As we worship, we remember our true relation to our fellows, to the world, and to God; and we rest in our essential, immanent oneness.]
