Yoga means to reconnect our consciousness with God, and the yoga of work is to connect our work with God. How do we connect our work with God? By doing it in proper spiritual consciousness. It is not that we have to change our job or give everything away; it means we have to learn how to live in divine consciousness.
That consciousness develops when we think of God, worship Him and become His devotees, when we associate with saintly people, when we make our home a temple and worship God, when we regularly purify and intensify our minds by chanting God’s names, and when we live a pure life abstaining from illicit sex, intoxication, gambling and meat eating. By practicing these processes our mind becomes divine, our consciousness becomes pure and then naturally whatever work we do, we do it in the spirit of compassion as an offering to God.
