Karma Yoga is the pathway of of Without action or detachment from
the fruit of action no progress is possible. This means determining
oneself through an act of pure action without attachment. The average
individual acts because of a desire to possess. The disciple of
this pathway acts without any desire to possess. This is the Yoga
with an impetus of sacrifice and immolation, where the jnani achieves
the same result through
Karma according to Vivekananda, system of ethics. The seeker strives
to attain liberation through unselfish action. A Karma Yogi need
not believe in any doctrine, or even God and need not indulge in
metaphysical speculation. The idea of doing good has become a part
of his very being and he has no need to seek for any motive outside.
Any work or action done with a selfish motive forges a chain around
our feet. So the only way is to give up all the fruits of work,
to be unattached to them.
We must understand that motion which does not require motion,
that action which does not require action, as we must understand
that love which does not demand love.
