Karma yoga is bhakti yoga. Swami Vivekananda, Freud, consequences of technology. Psychological designation in Vedanta appeared. Multipath confusion. Better to integrate all parts of the psyche. All stages of devotion are necessary, must be practised. For karma yoga you need a guru and the scripture. Only a mature person can surrender to Isvara.
Mantra “sadāśiva samārambhāṁ śaṅkarācāryamadhyamām...” The self is the guru. Self is beyond perception and inference. You need a guru because the tendency for self-deception is immense. Dead gurus don’t reveal your self-deceptions. You should manage your own life based on the knowledge. Desire produces anger, depression
and delusion. Karma yoga as right action: dharmic lifestyle is necessary. 5 daily practices: worship teacher, worship of ancestors (tvam eva mātā...), worship deity, service to humanity, protect environment. Desire hides your self from you. Karma yoga turns an extroverted and subjective mind into an introverted and objective mind. Inner child becomes an inner adult. Relationship of guru and disciple: Krsna and Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. Sakhya bhava. Karma yoga is an
appropriate use of your free will. Described in chapters 1-6 of the Bhagavad Gita.
