Karma Yoga - Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Third Chapter

Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Third chapter – Karma Yoga 

Arjuna after listening to sankya yoga

Arjuna: Krishna don’t confuse me with your words , is it better to give up everything and live like a saint or is it good to do karma? Tell me clearly what is good to me

Bhagavan Shri Krishna: Gyana yoga( giving up and knowing the actual knowledge) is for sankyas(saints) and karma yoga should be followed by yogis. Do your karma(duty).It is better to do your duty than not doing. If karma is not done life journey will not go further.

Considering the good that is going to happen to the world, it is always better to do karma. So it is better for you to do karma. Leave all your karma’s to me, put your chitta(consciousness) in atma(soul), leave desire, affection and do the war.

Who all perform karma as said above will get released from all the karma’s.

In everything (which can be seen,felt,heard……) there will be raga(affection) or dvesha(dislike or enemity). A karma yogi should not be bound by this. Ragadvesha are enemies to karma yogi.

Arjuna: Krishna why a human is doing papa( evil things) as if someone is forcing them to do? What is the reason and who is responsible for it?

Shri Krishna: Papa(evil) will be born from kamam(desire) , krodh(unnecessary anger) , rajogun(attitude of doing anything for a need). These are the enemies for every person in this world.

Kama(desire) will cover the knowledge of a person as dust covers a mirror. Kama cannot be satisfied. Kama will cover the gyana(knowledge) and with the help of indriyas(sense organs) will lead the person in to moha(illusion).

Indriyas are powerful, manas(thinking power/will….) is more powerful than indriyas, buddhi(power of differentiating good and bad) is more powerful than manas and atma(soul) is more powerful than buddhi. So with the help of atma(soul) control your indriyas and kill kama(desire).

With this third chapter of bhagavad gita – Karma yoga has been completed
