"The reason why I let myself be totally absorbed in serving the community, was my wish for self realisation. I had done it through serving my religion, since I felt God could only be reached through service. And service was for me to serve India, because I had the talent for it, and it came to me without me taking the initiative."
- Mahatma Gandhi
Karma Yoga is a system, which develops immunity to the reactive and negative components of an action. This awareness of action leads to a greater ability to manage mental associations in the form of desires, ambitions, ego and other personality complexes.
The aim of Karma Yoga is to gain freedom from the bondage of karma, which restricts and inhibits dynamic, creative and constructive expression in life. In the Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna has emphasized the need for action as a means to become truly human and attain divine grace.
Karma Yoga is a sadhana and not a practice. The state of Karma Yoga can be attained through seva (selfless involvement in all activities), the spirit of which can be imbibed under the guidance of a competent master.
