MEDITATION IN ACTION

A work or an activity performed with devotion and concentration of mind is an acceptable Hindu meditative practice. In this focused regime the tools of meditation may be different but the meditator achieves the same spiritual and tranquil experiences. The statue of dancing Nataraja in additions to its other attributes, also symbolizes meditation in action.

Meditation in action opens up practically any form of activity from dance to physical yoga exercises, recreation, reading, writing, playing or listening to music, or any life’s work to be meditative as long as the mind stays focused.
