“Being established in yoga… perform your actions, casting off attachment and remaining even-minded in both success and in failure. This evenness is called yoga.” — Bhagavad Gita 2.48
Karma Yoga is said to be a natural and practical path toward spiritual realization. As Sri Krishna points out, you will continue to act (work) as long as you’re alive. Since that’s the case, the question then becomes, “What can I do each day to make my actions lead toward, rather than away from, my goal?”
This is the topic of discussion in this talk.
