Bhagavad Gita Chapter IX Verse 27

Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer as oblation, whatever you give away and whatever austerities you perform, O son of Kunti, do that as an offering to Me. (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 9 verse 27). How blessed is such a life, free from fear, free from anxiety, and it would be so simple if our natures were not so perverted. We have to eat and drink and sleep and work. We cannot be without it. Why not then make the best use of all these necessities and make every action an offering to God? Then it will serve a double purpose. We will be fed physically and spiritually as well. Our physical thirst as also our spiritual thirst will be satisfied. We will rest the body and we will find rest in the Spirit; we will work performing our allotted duties in life and we will at the same time work for the glory of God. Of him who with a simple and trustful heart can thus practice the presence of God at all times, Sri Krishna says.
