Action means worship; and the accomplished doer is one who sees non-action in action, that is, who contemplates God and yet believes simultaneously that rather than being the doer, he has only been prompted to action by his inherent properties.
Only when this ability to see non-action has been mastered and the continuity of action is unbroken, should one believe that action is proceeding in the right direction. The man with this insight is a wise man. verily a yogi, endowed with the means by which the individual Soul is united with the Supreme Spirit, and a doer of perfect action. There is not even the slightest error in his performance of action.
“Even the learned call that man a sage all of whose actions are free from desire and will, (both) burnt to ashes by the fire of knowledge.”[Bhagavad Gita – 4.19]
One has to subdue the senses, control the mind, and augment pious impulses.Many yogis depend upon serenity of breath during silent recitation of the deity’s name by restraining the life-winds, in which state there is neither internal volition nor coming into the mind of any desire from the external environment.
In such a state of total restraint of the mind, when even restrained mind is dissolved, the worshipper merges into the changeless, eternal God.
This is yagya, the performance of which is action.
Therefore, the true meaning of action is “worship” it means divine adoration and practice of yog.
