Bhagavad Gita

Audio : What motivates us to act (to do karma)?

Karma, in the sense of action is normally done for one four reasons, according to Kunda Guruji :

  1. phalApEkSa : a desire for results/benefits.
  2. rAga dvESa : emotions like fondness and hatred
  3. sanga : attachment
  4. ahankAra : the sense of doership (I am the doer).

Absence of these reasons – leads to karmayoga.

There are 3 kinds of karmacOdana – motives (drivers) for karma according to Bhagavad Gita : Chapter 18.

  1. Knowledge or gnyAna
  2. That which is to be known – gnyEyam
  3. The knower – parignyAta
