What is Karma Yoga?

 

Karma Yoga is based on the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit scripture of Hinduism. The word "Karma" is derived from the Sanskrit Kri, meaning "to do". Krishna advocates selfless action as the ideal path to realize the Truth (enlightenment, a life in the light). Bhakti Yoga is love to God and to the spiritual Master. Karma Yoga is doing good to the whole world, to love the whole world and all beings. Krishna taught Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga and Gnan Yoga (self-reflection and meditation). These three are the complete way of love. But most important for the world is the yoga of action, of doing good.

 

In the remainder of this article, you will learn how to start on the path of being a Karma Yogi, practicing the religion of love.
