Service — Samadhi* — Lila** (Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj)

When you engage yourself, under the guidance of your spiritual master, 
in transcendental welfare work, and you do so without a selfish motive 
but rather as a service real, without any hidden agenda, then this becomes samadhi.




* Samadhi Ecstatic state of consciousness in which the mind becomes completely still, one-pointed or concentrated, and the consciousness of the experiencing subject becomes one with the experienced object.
 
**Lila — Divine play
