O Arjuna, be a Yogi
“The Yogi is greater than the ascetics; he is thought greater than even men of knowledge. The Yogi is greater than men of action. Therefore, O Arjuna, be a Yogi.” (From the Gita, Upanishad, the Ordinance of Yoga, the discourse between Krishna and Arjuna)
A yogi (Sanskrit, feminine root: yogini) is a term for a male practitioner of various forms of the path of Yoga.
One classical definition of Yoga is found in The Bhagavad Gita: Yoga is skill in action.
Skill in action means we perform our actions with an attitude of surrender and don’t cling to the results of our actions. Genuine surrender means we make the effort and take responsibility for our actions, but we are not attached to the outcome.
