Those paths, karmasanyas and karmayoga
Are seen by the less wise to be separate
Yet the wise ones see no difference
They both lead ultimately to the same abode
They both achieve the same goals
As long as they are truly established in the path //5:4//


Krishna in 5:2 says that there two supreme paths:

    1. Karma Sanyas:      Path of renunciation
    2. Karma yoga:        Living a normal life like you and I with focus on non-attachment.

And, now two verses later in 5:4, he says that there is actually no difference between these two paths.  What is Krishna trying to say here?

 

First in 5:2 he talks about the paths...and there are two main paths.  Here in this verse he talks about the end of the path.  Both paths lead to the same end.  The path is not like a rail road track.  It is more like a pyramid or peak of a mountain.

 

Another point to understand is that non-attachment is part of existence.  Krishna emphasizes non attachment because it is existential.  It is true nature of existence.  We are all interdependent; yet we are all independent and we are all non attached.  Interdependec brings us together and creates relationships, duties and responsibilities.  Interdepndence keeps non attached.

 

Whether we follow the path of karma yoga or the path of karma sanyas, we are all inter-dependent and inter-related yet we are all independent and we are all non attached.  Knowing this, practicing this, understanding this, living this .....we reach the same end.

 

We also need to understand that the keyword in either types is "non attachment."  No one becomes 'non attached' just by renouncing this world.  At the same time any one can become "non attached" even in the middle of the world.  Krishna is trying to explain this point here.  The end game is to comprehend and know this reality of "non attachment."  Once this is known thern there is no distinction between the two; you are neither attached to the world nor you are attached to God.  A person on either path  knows the same reality; both are just non attached and completely free.

Osho birthday 2011

December 11, 2011

Today is Osho’s Birth Day:

Never Born -- Never Died -- Only visited this planet Earth between December 11, 1931 and January 19, 1990. With these literally immortal words, Osho both dictates his epitaph and dispenses with his biography. Having previously removed his name from everything, he finally agrees to accept "Osho," explaining that it is derived from William James' "oceanic." "It is not my name," he says, "it is a healing sound."

 

My Osho

I first met Osho, then Bhagwan Rajneesh in 1971 in Mt. Abu meditation camp. I had attended his talk before when he first came to Patna as Prof. Rajneesh. Now he is just Osho for me.

I took sanyas in 1971 and during sanyas he hesitated a moment before he put the mala in my neck and gave me a name, Swami Krishna Mohan Bharati. Many years later I found out that he hesitated because he saw a hesitation in my eyes and not because he wondered if I am a suitable for his sanyas.

I always remember two of my encounters with him:

Sakam Karma: Desire driven Actions

Sakam Karma: Desire driven actions.

What it is not:

Many translate sakam karma as ‘selfish actions.’   I think it is far from the truth. In that respect, Buddha was a selfish man; he left his wife and children for selfish interests.   Sakam karma is not necessarily bad

Karma Sanyas: giving up of mundane actions

December 4, 2011

Gita jayanti month

Karma Sanyas (Give up mundane actions)

So far we have discussed about definition and types of karma. We will take up the karma sanyas today, which means giving up of mundane karma.

Do you have a routine life? You have a job or you are retired. You come home, watch TV, and play video games and or surf on the internet. Just think of those who live life in service of God. They pray, they preach and they are there to help you when you need it most.

Karma definition

Gita Jayanti month

Definition of Karma

Karma is a Sanskrit word and means “Action or work.”  How do you define karma? We all know what an action or work is, but we never feel that a definition is needed. Krishna defined Karma in Bhagavad Gita as:
