8 Life Lessons from the Bhagavad-Gita ~ 8: Bhagavad-Gita on Karma
Most people have at least a passing understanding of the concept of karma. The idea that what you do to others will come back to you may have encouraged you to modify your behaviour with the idea of attracting more good karma than bad karma. But did you know that even “good karma” has a serious downside? If even good karma is not desirable, how can we live in this world without creating karma? In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna teaches the yogic path of karma yoga, also known as the “art of all work”, whereby you can achieve complete freedom from all karma.

From the Vision of Eternity: 8 Life Lessons from the Bhagavad-Gita
The Bhagavad Gita has been studied and praised for thousands of years for its clarity, insight and wealth of spiritual knowledge. It not only contains the foundation for the system of yoga, it is the guidebook for living a meaningful, joyful life and facing death fearlessly.
The Bhagavad Gita begins dramatically with Arjuna, the world’s greatest warrior prince, casting down his weapons on the battlefield, unwilling to fight in the battle of his life. Overcome with anguish and confusion, he turns to Krishna who proceeds to guide him from darkness to light. The eternal truths of the Bhagavad Gita resonate just as powerfully today, shining light on our own battles and guiding us from confusion to clarity.
In this 8-part series of webcasts we present the timeless wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita as it relates to the challenges, trials and tribulations we face in our own lives. If you would like to live a life that is fearless, full of purpose and deep happiness, the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita is for you.
