What is Karma Yoga

The word “karma” means “action.” The result of our actions is referred to as karma-phalam in Sanskrit, or the fruit of one’s actions. ”Phalam” means fruit.

Karma states that your work is your responsibility, not its result. Bhagavad Gita says ,never let the fruits of your actions be your motive. Nor give in to inaction. Set firmly in yourself, do your work, not attached to anything. Remain even minded in success, and in failure. Even mindedness is true yoga.

Karma yoga is a path to reach moksha (spiritual liberation) through work. It is rightful action without being attached to fruits or being manipulated by what the results might be, a dedication to one's duty, and trying one's best while being neutral to rewards or outcomes such as success or failure.

The tendency for a human being to seek the fruits of action is normal,  but an exclusive attachment to fruits and positive immediate consequences can compromise dharma.

Now,Lets's see the list of Slokas about karma from Bhagavad Gita.
