Karma Yoga

     Karma Yoga is selfless service. Often times, we are so carried away by our own dramas and thoughts that we forget everyone what truly matters. By helping others we take a peak of true happiness as other become happier. Serving others is an opportunity to know ourselves, including our true motivations and limitations. It is also an excellent opportunity to understand that we are not separate from those that we help, and to understand that others are comprised of the same energy that we are.

 

    True service that is fully selfless is very difficult. It occurs when there is no desire to gain any benefits from the practice, and by such desire, the Yogi is no longer subject to the wheel of birth and death. However, any service done with good intention and motivation to attain a higher state of consciousness eventually leads to selflessness.
