3. Formal devotion. What is karma? Prarabdha, sanchita and agami karma. Karma is similar to a bank account. 3 possibilities: add karma, exhaust karma or stay the same. People with little karma become sannyasi. Karma Yoga means how to relate to your karma. Neutralise your karma to have a steady mind. Gunas, mind and karma. Deities are Vedas in code. Rishis show you who Isvara is. The love for myself depends on whether I am handling the karma properly. You are the witness of karma. The I has no karma. All karmas are created by Isvara. Isvara or God: creator, upholder or dharma, giver of results. Isvara is in charge of the results. The principle to hand out results to jivas are the needs of the total. Isvaras versus jivas mind. Karma is hard to understand: I want results and I am not sure if I get it. Karma Yoga is acting like an enlightened person: offering the actions as a worship to Isvara as the giver of results. Isvara gave you your life as a gift. Karma Yoga is love of God. This attitude during action reduces karma. Giving instead of grabbing. Your whole life is an altar. It is normal to do good things with love. Accept the good and bad results with an attitude of gratitude. More Vedanta seminars.
