I am a yogin of the lineage of Kabir My yogic guides are Sri Aurobindo , Swami Sivananda , Swami Vivekananda , and Yogi Paul. In reply, Krishna then elucidates upon a number of philosophical yoga systems and practices (including karma yoga) by/through which Arjuna should indeed continue with the fight on righteous principles. The use of asana, pranayama, and meditation for healing is known as Yoga Chikitsa, or Yoga Therapy and has been used for thousands of years by Ayurvedic and yogic adepts. So when there is no desire of reaction than action ( Karma) takes place and when action takes place it ends on inaction ( Akarma). So Karma ( action ) is the art of work which is performed without any influence of outer spectrum. Vedanta is that philosophy which comes from the sacred scriptures called The Upanishads.
Above spiritual aspect of karma yoga in a way strengthen the social and political system which is based on graded hierarchy. What asanas help you do is that they help you gain a better sitting position that aids your meditation. If anyone thinks that he can commit all sorts of crimes and indulge in immoral activities but still benefit from Kriya Yoga he is completely mistaken. Karma Yoga is mindful action and interaction through the day, in the service of what makes us grow. So karma philosophy is not blaming somebody but seeing how one's future has been planned based on what you did in the past. These spiritual paths how to practise karma yoga and their meditation techniques can be practiced by anyone, regardless of their prakruti.
Therefore Vedanta is said to be the philosophy which leads to the end of knowledge and too from the ending part of the Vedas. In the same way, one class of society thinks that certain things are among its duty, while another class thinks quite the opposite and would be horrified if it had to do those things. As mentioned in my previous blog, originally there were four different types of yoga created. In fulfilling all the duties of life the Karma Yogi takes refuge in love, making it the sole motive power behind every action of body and mind; and whenever he performs any duty, it is always through love. One way of looking at yoga is in terms of the chakras (energy points within us).
It teaches people how to remain engaged with the process of living, however difficult and distasteful the circumstances may be. This is in stark contrast to the popular opinion that men should renounce their worldly things, go to a forest or some secluded place, away from society like a cave and perform tapas or meditation in order to achieve self-realization.
But if you are doing it joyfully, without expectations and simply because it is what needs to be done, then of course it is a karma yoga. This process continues until the individual attains a zero balance (no karma remaining), where in one achieves liberation. Cosmic karma results from the intervention of the one underlying energy, known as God, Goddess, the Divine, the Universe, Consciousness, etc. So do Girl Scout Troop #324 karma, BFF karma, Save the Whales karma, Young Republicans karma... The list goes on and on. This beginner friendly yoga class opens the body and cultivates the free flow of energy within the body. Vata: Kriya Yoga or Ashtanga Yoga and other structured techniques help to keep vata stabilized and focused.
