Preface

This Text on Karma Yoga (Yoga of Action) was assembled from the transcribed talks of Sri Gurudev (Spiritual Master) Sri Swami Satchidananda and from the works of Swami Vivekananda, Swami Abedananda (Brother-monk of Swami Vivekananda), Swami Sivananda and other Saints and writers, which are listed under references and cited in the footnotes. I acknowledge my grateful indebtedness to all of them. If there are any errors and faults, I am personally responsible.

This Text is much more comprehensive than any other text on Karma Yoga. It covers all aspects of Karma Yoga with guidelines for practicing it. There are four major paths for attaining the life's goal of Self-realization or God-realization, namely, Bhakti Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Karma Yoga. Karma Yoga is the approach to God through selfless service. It spiritualizes our day-to-day activities and service to others and by its magic touch, work becomes worship and Yoga.

The compilation of this work was entirely due to the inspiration and Grace of my beloved Sri Gurudev and the Supreme Lord. Indeed Sri Gurudev (visible manifestation of God) and the Lord worked through this humble soul. With deep devotion I dedicate this Text to the Lotus Feet of Sri Gurudev and the Lord for having used this soul as an instrument in their Hands.

May this Text inspire and guide the students of Yoga in their sincere practices for achieving the ultimate purpose of life, Self- realization.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
