11am to 12noon, on Zoom only
Join us online . No in-person attendance.

Br. Shankara will give a talk, Whose Karma Is It? this Sunday morning on Zoom. Do join us and participate in the discussion... this is how we practice together the art of spirituality.

...

March is a month for study of Karma Yoga, a spiritual path leading to the abandonment of selfishness. As a karma yogi, you practice offering all your actions and their results, as well as your perceptions, thoughts, and feelings to the Divine Presence.

In many Ramakrishna Mission centers, this prayer is chanted by the congregation at the end of a homa fire ceremony:

“No matter what I may have done, said or thought, in waking, dreaming or dreamless sleep, with my mind, my tongue, my hands or my other members, may all this be an offering to Brahman.” 

Even before realizing that Divine Presence, you hold firmly to the belief that the Presence is within each person or other living being that you interact with or serve. Working and abiding in this spirit, you are increasingly able to release attachment to your activities and their results. This yields the freedom and contentment promised by Karma Yoga.

“Even a little practice of this yoga will save you from the terrible wheel of rebirth and death …” — Sri Krishna, Bhagavad Gita, Ch. 2

Whose Karma Is It?

“Not a leaf moves but by the will of God …” “God alone is the Doer …” — so say the scriptures. The Divine Mother “is the All-Pervading (goddess), who constantly presides over the senses of all beings, and governs all the elements …”  — from the Chandi.

In the presence of such thoughts, is it easier to believe Sri Krishna when he says the “fruits” of your actions (karma) are not your own — that, in fact, you have no right to that karma?

Can you experience what Krishna says as a great relief? We’ll explore and discuss these questions on Sunday morning.
