Srimad Bhagavatham (11:29:9)

 

कुर्यात् सर्वाणि कर्माणि मद्-अर्थं शनकैः स्मरन्

मय्य् अर्पित-मनश्-चित्तो मद्-धर्मात्म-मनो-रतिः

 

Whatever may be the activity you may be engaged in, always do it remembering the Lord and as a humble offering to Him.

At the same time performing activities without spiritual practices is meaningless. We should learn to be like Hanuman by balancing both types of activities.

 

To achieve this goal I try to chant His name but am not able to do it continuously because it is involved in worldly activities

 

Chanting the Name of Răma, Hanuman crossed the ocean! — and, lifted the mountain!

Mountain sized sorrows melt away like the fog!

 

Catch hold of this divine Name and go on doing your work in the world.

 

While you concentrate on your studies and prepare yourself for your future, you also need God's grace.

 

Hanuman worked tirelessly for Rama. He also performed incessant Rama japa. We should also be like this.

 

Nothing we earn today would come with us to the final destination but only the Divine Name WILL

 

Keep Chanting, even while engaged in the activities of the world

 

One should constantly repeat the names of God irrespective of any activity that he might be involved in

 

Keep the Name of the Lord spinning in midst of all your activities. Have intense faith in God, and in His Name, know that they are not different.

 

People perform actions for the sake of happiness; but they neither attain happiness nor succeed in ending their sorrow thereby

 

Lord Rama says, “Any accumulated wealth will dissolve in due time. Any position of power attained will come to an end. All the relations (children, wife) come to an end in death. There is nothing in this world that is permanent.”

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
