(Discourse 44, extracted and adopted from the book “108 discourses of
Guru Dev” by courtesy of Paul Mason)
Apply the mind to samsara (worldly existence) only so much that paramarth (salvation) is not spoiled. My intention is not that all you people should become detached from the world and dedicate yourselves fully to God. Do everyday affairs, but not the kind of everyday affairs that are unseemly and which spoil the chance of salvation.
If you apply the mind too much to worldly business, then again, everyday affairs will suffer.
With the mind inside applied to thinking of Paramatma, then everyday affairs will be beautiful too and you will also make clear paramarth
