Work as an act of worship by Radhanath Swami

Our whole life should be an act of worship. We should aim for spiritual purification in order to have this consciousness 24 hours a day. While remembering God offer every word, every act and every thought to Him. The perfection of life is when God accepts that love. This is what great devotees of the Lord throughout history have prayed for. They do not want any power; they simply pray, ‘O Lord! Please accept my love and devotion.’ Because they have purity of purpose, all their actions are in active compassion for entire humanity.

    This is the difference between great souls like Radhanath Swami and ordinary people like me.
