Swami Sivananda did not write text books as such. The books he wrote were the outpourings of wisdom from his own direct relation of the Truth.
From his books you will derive not only the benefit of his wisdom and knowledge of both practical and esoteric matters pertaining to Yoga, but also the power of his spiritual force.
Swami Sivananda had a unique style simple, direct and compelling. His books are not dull treaties on yoga and philosophy, rather his enthusiasm and eagerness to help all is evident in every page, lifting the reader to new heights of understanding.
Sri Swami Sivananda was an embodiment of karma yoga. His life was an illustration of perfection in karma yoga. His teachings on bhakti, jnana or raja yoga were all karma yoga oriented. Hence it has not been easy to 'isolate' his teachings on karma yoga as such.
This volume represents his published work on 'The Practice of Karma Yoga', plus extracts from several other works. However, one who studies the other volumes in this series will doubtless get a complete picture of Swamiji's views that karma yoga is the natural outflow of love of God or wisdom of the Self.
How to live in this world without disappointment, resentment and anxiety?
Swami Sivananda, in this book on karma yoga (or the art of dynamic selfless service), shows us how to participate in every way in this world, without disappointment and the accompanying bitterness. The secret is selfless service without expectation of a reward or even results.
Karma yoga is suited to the dynamic man of action. But no-one can live without action, so everyone can benefit from its principles.
Swami Sivananda, a dynamic karma yogi, looks at action and karma yoga from every viewpoint in this book. He also covers the Duties of Man, Universal Laws governing action, the Law of Karma and Reincarnation.
