Karma Yoga

The term ‘Karma’ is derived from the Sanskrit word, ‘Kri’ which means ‘to do’. And since the word ‘yoga’ means ‘to unite’, Karma Yoga literally translates to ‘union through action’. In Vedantic philosophy, its meaning may extend to both the action as well as the affects of the action conducted in meditative awareness. It is therefore the yoga of dynamic meditation. In terms of yoga, it refers to the unselfish, non-expectant service for the good of the general world. It is meant as a positive effect to the negativity that may have been caused by us through our deeds, and acts to nullify this effect and therefore free ourselves from the negative energy.
