4 (More) Hard Lessons I Learned From Karma Yoga

One thought on “4 (More) Hard Lessons I Learned From Karma Yoga

  1. Nicole

    Is it better to request what you’re accustomed to (I’m a housewife and love to bake and make a mean salad) or what I enjoy (I love to organize office supplies and garden)?

    • Katie

      Nicole, it’s a great question.

      I say to share what your skills are in the application form, but then do whatever job they give you with a positive attitude.

      I was given a department that I didn’t want at first. It was the BEST thing that could have happened to me though, in terms of my growth. If I wasn’t open to that, I wouldn’t have had all the self-development that I got from it.

      Trust what they give you! 🙂

  2. Tom Spector (Kumar)

    Great lessons, Ambika. Thanks for sharing them so eloquently. Sending love to you and your husband and wishing you many blessing for this new stage in your life.

  3. Satyadev

    Thank you for sharing, Ambika. I remembered your early years’ struggles when we were neighbours at the Ashram. I wish you all the best in your “household” life. I continued to do karma yoga in various spiritual communities around the world. Om shanti. Love & light. Satyadev (AKA “Living Connections of the Heart” from Plum Village, “Wild Cosmic Heart” from Kalani retreat center.)

    Om Ambika! Beatifully expressed. Had so much fun with during our time together and learned so much from you. Till our paths cross once more!!!

  5. Betsy ( Bhagavati)

    Very nice to read your writings. The ashram is a special place & happy that it is a part of my life. Each time gets better & better. In fact, many of my best friends I met at the ashram.

  6. Bea Doyle

    As always, so well written eloquent and heartfelt…you were one of the most influential and guiding lights for me when I came to the Boutique and was adjusting to karma yoga at the ashram. So grateful we got to know each other and I gleaned some of your wisdom. This past season was profound for me and now that I’m home I’m still processing it. Timing for such an article as this was divinely perfect. Much love to you and Arjuna in your new life together. Love always.

    Ambika, so beautifully written, I remember you from last year 2016, A good inside view of how to look at Karma yoga, you definitely made me see it a in a different light. I will be going to the Bahamas to do Karma Yoga and I feel much better prepared to go forward..

    • Kate Papo

      I’m so glad Anne! I hope you have a beautiful and meaningful experience this year in karma yoga. I know that for me, every year I went back it just got deeper and better 🙂
