Karma Yoga – the Yoga of selfless action, purifies the mind. In this practice, there is no attachment to outcome as we learn to convert all of our activities into a yogic practice.
Karma Yoga is ideal for those who are of a busy, outgoing, or community-based nature. It is the intention woven within our actions, which perpetuates more actions and the ongoing state of our minds. When we act, we often do so with the underlying question – “How will this benefit me?” Through the practices of Karma Yoga, we change the intention to “how can this benefit others?”
Karma yoga suggests that we act with an attitude of selfless service, without any anticipation of credit or specific results. We act simply for the joy of being ABLE to act, with no attachment to a particular outcome.
The practice of karma yoga removes selfishness and egotism. It renders the heart pure and qualifies the practitioner for progress on the spiritual path. Karma yoga is essential and indispensable for all sincere spiritual aspirants.
