In this talk, Swamiji discusses the subtle concept of Karma Yoga in detail. In Karma Yoga, a Yogic attitude is called for in all activities-- professional, domestic, social activity. A Karma Yogin, instead of doing work for satisfaction, does work with satisfaction. He does not wait for any result to get enrichment and joy.

Activity is a corollary of life, says Swamiji. Be seated in Yoga and do all activities. Enlightening the listeners about the right attitude of performance of any action, Swamiji says that the attention should be totally on the performance and not on the result. Discussing relevant Bhagavad Gita verses, he asks us to do all activities abandoning all delusional clinging and attachment. This abandonment is an inner process, emphasizes Swamiji. Explaining verse 2.47, Swamiji brings great clarity to the minds of listeners.

Discussing the concept of Samatva, Swamiji exhorts us to be prepared in our mind to accept any result—an adverse or partial result. If one is prepared, the mind will not be unsettled by an adverse result. The mind should be uniform to receive a desired result or an undesired result. When the mind is stifled by the thought of the results, know that you have Sanga, says Swamiji.

Giving the formula for enlightened action, Swamiji says a seeker has to find out whether his mind is equal (Sama) or not. When you know that it is unequal, work towards equalness. Yoga is not performance of work but poise and stability in the face of any challenges. This Yoga has to be pursued throughout the day in all activities, urges Swamiji.
