Question: How much importance should we give to the physical exercise in comparison with our regular work?

Sri Chinmoy: You are working very hard at your business, but you are thinking that that is the only work you have to do. You are giving one hundred per cent of your attention to your business, and not even one per cent to your body. But you have to feel that the body is also something necessary. So when you are here taking exercise or playing games, you have to think that this is the only thing in your life. Otherwise, while you are here you will still be thinking of your business. Your mind will not be here. Each time you play a game here, feel that this is the most important thing — not to do selfless service or to meditate. If you give importance to this, you will get extra energy from it for your work.
