KARMA SIDDHANTA (KARMA PHILOSOPHY)
As per Karma yoga what all we do, physical or mental is Karma and it will have effect on us.
What all is going on in one’s life is because of the previous karma’s one has done and the Karma’s which one will do now, will decide one’s future.
Our karma determines what we deserve and what we can assimilate. We are responsible for what we are and whatever we wish ourselves to be. We have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our past action, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions.
According to karma yoga, the action one has done cannot be destroyed until it has borne its fruit. If you do evil actions you will suffer for it, if you do good actions you will enjoy good results.
But both good and bad Karma’s will bind you and will stop you from reaching one ultimate goal Moksha. To achieve Moksha one should be free from Karma’s
So is it possible to stop doing Karma’s? For a normal person it is impossible. So Karma yoga teaches a method by which a person can achieve Moksha by doing his duties (Karma’s)
Karma yoga says to do only good karma and at the same time don’t get attached with that karma. Means doing a good work just for the sake of doing good and not expecting anything in return.
For example if you want to donate “X” amount of money for charity, donate it only for the sake of helping others and don’t expect name or fame from that action. And at the same time don’t have the attitude that you have donated it, feel blessed that god have chosen you as postman to do that good activity.
So like this do your duty continuously just for the sake of doing duty and don’t get attached with the duty or result.
So how can we give up this attachment?
One of the best way told in karma yoga to avoid this attachment is to give up the fruits of work to God. Don’t do bad and for whatever good work you have done, don’t claim any praise or benefit and offer them at lord’s feet.
