CONTEMPLATION THROUGH ACTION.
The Bhagvad Gita outlines a “Karma Yoga” that brings together the contemplative vision of a God immanent in the whole of Creation, and the human search for justice, without concern for the fruits or benefits that an active life might bring. What is important is the spirit of service, and Hope, yearning for a future in which all will find fulfilment in solidarity. Fr. Sebastian Painadath sj. Sums this vision up in his book on Ashrams entitled “Solitude and Solidarity” (ISPCK 2003)
