About Karma Yoga

Karma yoga is described as a way of acting, thinking and willing by which one orients oneself towards realization by acting in accordance with one's duty (dharma) without consideration of personal self-centered desires, likes or dislikes. One acts without being attached to the results of one's deeds.

Simply put, one does not get emotionally involved in the action being performed, becoming overly excited, upset or angry when the result of a deed is not as expected. The result may be negative or positive.

Karma yoga is a way to thank the Universe for its endowments. Karma yoga shows us how to give selflessly and allows us to receive indiscriminately. Its a source of inspiration that lets our creativity flow and helps all sorts of innovative ideas and revelations emerge. Karma yoga channels our wisdom and insight which are always accessible to us, as long as we are willing to trust our inner voice and believe in our original ideas.
