To move forward/backward through the talk, slide the gray bar that appears once audio is playing.
October is a month for study of Karma Yoga, a spiritual path leading to the abandonment of selfishness. As a karma yogi, you practice offering your actions and their results, as well as your perceptions, thoughts, and feelings to the Divine Presence.
Even before fully knowing this Presence, you hold firmly to the belief that the Presence is within each person or other living being that you interact with or serve. Working and abiding in this spirit, you are increasingly able to release attachment to your activities and their results. This is the freedom promised by Karma Yoga.
“Even a little practice of this yoga will save you from the terrible wheel of rebirth and death …” — Sri Krishna to Arjuna, Bhagavad Gita, Ch. 2
Br. Shankara was away giving a talk on Vedanta at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Roswell. Dr. Nuli graciously accepted Br. Shankara’s invitation to lead and facilitate our congregation in this Open Forum on Karma Yoga.
