Hare Krishna Prabhu / Matajis.
I'm a little bit confused with the concept laid down by Krishna himself in Srimad-Bhagwat-Geeta. He tells in BG/Chapter 6(whole chapter) about YOGA. He is called 'Yogi-Raj'. Although I understand he isn't talking about YOGA i.e. physical exercise but he is advocating 'Meditation' & to support this all chapter he uses verge 13-14. This whole chapter made me super-confused since Srila Prabhupada never gave focus on Meditation on krishna(at-least in this purport). So, I found Purport of the verse isn't advocating the verse's original meaning at all(S.P. plz forgive this conditioned soul, I'm confused :( )
samaḿ kāya-śiro-grīvam dhārayann acalaḿ sthirah

:: Translation ::
One should hold one's body, neck and head erect in a straight line and stare steadily at the tip of the nose. Thus, with an unagitated, subdued mind, devoid of fear, completely free from sex life, one should meditate upon Me within the heart and make Me the ultimate goal of life.
Can I please be told when devotional service is of high importance why he is telling to meditate?
As I'm in Krishna Counsciosness, can I include meditation as a part of my daily routine. Because including won;t make any harm but will improve me to strengthen my mind, which he clearly says.
Can I be answered, please...
