Does Karma Yoga mean just doing Karma? Using pivotal verses from Bhagavad Gita, Poojya Swamiji explains how the cyclic wheel of activity is inevitable in life. Then what is the renunciation of results that Krishna speaks so emphatically about? Swamiji reveals to us that the objective external results of karmas are not what Gita wants us to renounce. The subjective results are the ones implied here and they can be renounced in full, no doubt. By so renouncing, we do not lose anything, but instead gain something everlasting.
Let us imbibe the yogic vision that Swamiji lovingly instructs us - To do activities without delusional clinging (without sanga) and have an equal mental vision (samatva) towards the fruits of our actions.
Verses explained by Swamiji: Bhagavad Gita 2.48, 2.47, 2.52
Bhagavad Gita 2.7, 18.11, 3.16, 18.12
Ashtavakra Samhita 9.5
Brahmabindu Upanishad 18
Srimad Bhagavatam 11.11.18

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
