We are vitally concerned in any ideology which will promise more efficient living, more abundant health and more material improvements. And this no doubt attracts many students to follow Karma Yoga, the Yoga of Action.

Everyone has abilities which would enable them to use for the benefit of others. Most people cover up their talents by a slothful attitude, or smother there secret longings for expression, under disappointment, frustration and procrastination etc. Practice of Yoga develops confidence in oneself and focuses what it is that you can give to the world – what it is that you and you alone can contribute. Then truly, your life is not wasted if there is a purpose to your life other than your own personal experiencing of good and bad, knowledge and ignorance, pain and pleasure.
