In the Bhagavat Gita, Lord Krishna says: "I have delineated three paths for the benefit of humans: Karma Yoga, Gyan Yoga, and Bhakti Yoga. There is no way other than these." This book is the first in the trilogy of definitive books on Karma Yoga, Gyan Yoga, and Bhakti Yoga offering an unparalleled presentation of the authentic yoga of India as experienced by a realized Yogi through over 40 years of intense sadhana and authenticated by the ancient Scriptures of India.
In this book on Karma Yoga, Swami Rajarshi Muni defines for the spiritual seeker the laws and implications of Karma - how they apply to each of us and to give us a grasp of the significance our everyday actions have on our present and future lives. It lays out the real purpose of the human life and how the various kinds of karmas either enmesh us further in the illusion of maya or raise us up spiritually. He also outlines how the practice of Nishkam Karma (Desireless or Spontaneous Yoga) is the true answer to the human's release from the bondage of his karmas. The fruits of Karma Yoga is entry into Gyan Yoga.
Swami Rajarshi Muni was born in 1931. He has devoted himself to the serious study and practice of Yoga since his early youth. He renounced the world and received sannyas in 1971. He devoted himself almost exclusively to secluded yoga sadhana thereafter, his daily practice spanning at least ten hours. In response to a spiritual calling, he temporarily emerged from seclusion in 1993 to undertake certain works for the public good and further the mission of the spiritual lineage of Lord Lakulish, twenty-eighth incarnation of Lord Shiva, of which he is the fourth and present head. He has since reverted to secluded sadhana in 2007 to complete his yoga. He is an advanced yogi, a realized Master in the classic mould of Indian adepts, knower of the kundalini and master of the khechari mudra. He is presently engaged in converting the body into the exquisite Divine Body, a subject he has extensively researched and one about which he has written from a position of eminent qualification. He has authored many definitive texts on yoga, including the inimitable Yoga the Ultimate Spiritual Path and Classical Hatha Yoga.
