What is Karma Yoga?

The word karma is derived from the Sanskrit kri, meaning ‘to do’. In its most basic sense karma simply means action, and yoga translates to union. Thus karma yoga literally translates to the path of union through action. Karma yoga is described as a way of acting through selfless service.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
“The fragrance always remains on the hand that gives the rose.”
“It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.”
Mother Teresa
“Love cannot remain by itself — it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.”
Mother Teresa
