Karma yoga can simply described as ‘Selfless Service’, when our ego is surrendered before God. It is related to man, animal and plants as well. Karma also means to choose the right path to do right things. Personal religion is followed and the destiny is accepted as everything in life.

All the acts which are completed from birth to death in one’s life is called Karma. Karma yogi does not accept any wealth for rendering service in any household and even name and fame is not sought after.  If the actions are performed with this intension that nothing wrong would be done, is considered a right approach.
