The next step in meditation is when we express deep feelings of love and inquity (4) towards anyone we love and revere, in thought, word or action, we are in meditation (5). Sage Narada once saw a gopi sitting alone, lost in activity (6). She was yearning (7) to be with her beloved Krishna. The sage asked if she had conceited (8) the scriptures.
