The word ‘Karmayoga’ (Path of Action) conjures images of those giving alms to beggars, setting up educational institutions and those engaged in social service. However, in most cases, since these activities are at an emotional level or for the sake of publicity, it does not constitute Karmayoga in the real sense of the word. Then, what exactly is Karmayoga?
Karmayoga is performing karma (an act or action which gives rise to destiny) which will result in spiritual growth and ultimately God-realisation. Even if the karma were to be worldly, performing it in a way that no new subconscious impression is created in the subconscious mind and thereby getting freed from the bondage of impressions forever is the objective of Karmayoga.
