Remembrance

"Worship God. Leave all else.

Worship demands singleness of purpose and concentration of the whole mind onGod. As long as the heart is divided in its loyalty, and the full attention is not given to God—until the remembrance of His holy name is constant—the blessedness and bliss of true God-realisation does not come.

Our sojourn on earth is as uncertain as a dewdrop on a rose petal.

Therefore, worship God. Leave all else."

Shri Dadaji Maharaj

How Islamic this Hindu advice sounds to me.

It is important to strike the proper balance in worship and life. Acts of this life can easily become worship if made with the proper intention.

Yes. That is a major difference between Islam and the monastic religions. Muslims do not renounce the world.

Interesting point.
