After making it abundantly clear that none can ever remain inactive even for a moment, Poojya Swamiji enlightens us about the Yajna attitude of mind.
Swamiji explains that to be active is far superior than being inactive. Even the preservation of our body will not be possible without action. However, one has to discreetly perform all actions with Yajna attitude, otherwise these actions will bind us in sukha and dukha. All sukha-dukha feelings are responses produced by the mind - not the senses, objects or actions. So the mind, by bringing a new orientation towards Karma - that is to perform all karma as an offering to the Supreme, will not be troubled by the outcome of activities.
Swamiji says, activities will always happen, but doing it with Yajna attitude is entirely our will. For a seeker, doing all activity with yogic enrichment is what ultimately matters!

Narayanashrama Tapovanam, an Ashram located in Thrissur, Kerala, embodies the unique tradition of Guru-shishya Parampara, disseminating Brahmavidya (Science of Self-knowledge) through regular classes, satsangs, and above all, through learning in the association of a realized spiritual master.
Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
