Teachings from Upadesa Saram

Actions done with an attitude of dedication to the Lord, without attachment to the result, purify the mind and are a means to attain liberation.
The results of actions are impermanent and pass off. Yet, their seeds form an ocean of Karma which becomes a barrier in the progress of a seeker.
The actions performed by the body — ritualistic puja, japa (chanting) and contemplation (inner meditation) — each is superior to the other in an ascending order.
Singing the Lord’s praises is good but better than that is loud chanting of Japa, while superior to loud chanting is soft Japa. However, best of all is silent, mental Japa.
Like an unbroken flow of oil or a stream of water; continuous meditation is better than that which is interrupted.
