Karma is the yoga of action, and it focuses on the causes and effects of an individual’s actions. The goal of karma yoga is to guide one to spiritual freedom through selfless service to others. Karma achieves union with God through right action and through service. Individuals practicing karma yoga do not receive rewards for good deeds, nor is karma yoga attached to a specific outcome. The individual performs a service without judgment, expectation of a desired outcome, or a reward for the action. Those who practice karma yoga are not vested in a positive or negative result. Since actions are not performed for self-gratification, the person performing the service is completely involved in what he or she is doing. Focus is totally in the moment without worry of success, failure, or ego. The ego is sublimated in karma yoga.
