Karma Yoga: The Yoga Of Action

The practice of Yoga through action is the subject of this book. Karma also has to do with the effects of our actions. One important thing about karma yoga is that you don't need to believe in God to practice this yoga. The author talks about the different kinds of work, and how our karma affects us, and what we can do about it. More important, he explains how to work to bring the greatest results.It is said in the practice of Vedanta that we have a right to work, but don't have a right to the results of our actions. We have to work as hard as we can, give the work our best quality effort, then step back and let the results take care of themselves. Or in the practice of yoga, offer the results to God.Work purifies the soul. This concept is a bit different than many of us have been taught in the West, but the book offers an interesting approach that can save us from a lot of misery and bring us closer to God. In fact, you don't even need to believe in God to practice this yoga.
