Shri Krishna says, Anyone who neglects people who are in need of care and who simply only worships, his efforts are wasted.
Shrimad Bhagavata Purana 3.29.2
We can disregard the external world and continue with our meditation, yoga practise, and worship, but what about all of those who need our help. The fact remains that every day over a billion people on the planet need our assistance. Shri Krishna here calls for Dharmic duty and serve God who exists in the hearts of other living entities.
May we see Shri Krishna in all, and serve God through helping those who need our help.
