Part 8: Bhagavad-gita on Karma

by Acharya das

Most people have at least a passing understanding of the concept of karma. The idea that what you do to others will come back to you may have encouraged you to modify your behaviour with the idea of attracting more good karma than bad karma. But did you know that even "good karma" has a serious downside? If even good karma is not desirable, how can we live in this world without creating karma? In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna teaches the yogic path of karma yoga, also known as the "art of all work", whereby you can achieve complete freedom from all karma.
