Wisdom of Yoga | on action

A Karma-Yogi performs action by body, mind, intellect, and senses, without attachment (or ego) - only for self-purification.

One can become whatever one wants to be if one constantly contemplates on the object of desire with faith.

Whatever you do, make it an offering to Me - the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering.

On action alone be thy interest,
Never on its fruits.
Let not the fruits of action be thy motive,
Nor be thy attachment to inaction.

Action is greater than inaction. Perform therefore thy task in life. Even the life of the body could not be if there were no action.

Attachement to the fruits of action binds a person to continual sufferings.

Note: Yoga = unification, union, Karma = action, Yogi = one who seeks union.
