If we believe
in Hinduism... the doctrine of Nishakama karma would become clear.
Even while engaged in action... if we do not bind self with the
fruits of karma performed... we are performing Nishakama karma...
that does not precipitate any fruits of karma in our favor.
example of Nishakama karma was King Janaka... Father of Sita in
Ramayana! King Janaka lived life selflessly without ever engaging
in the fruits of karma performed. Even while looking after the entire
kingdom... King Janaka was far away from it!
in his lifetime became enlightened (gained kaivalya jnana). It is
only through the path of Nishakama karma one progresses on the spiritual
path! Burning out karma in totality is what spirituality is all
When 11 years
of age I wanted to see and meet God in this very life. Never correctly
understanding meaning of Nishakama karma in the initial stages of
life... I proceeded on the path of spirituality with absolute faith
in God. I always offered the fruits of karma performed to God.
As I neared
the goal of life... the meaning of Nishakama karma became absolutely
clear. Everything belonging to God Almighty! The Advaita Vedanta
doctrine of Hinduism confirms God as the only truth of life. When
everything belonged to God Almighty... human beings merely became
a trustee in the hands of God.
the Man of steel from India... the architect of technological infrastructure
of India... was a Nishakama Karma Yogi par excellence! In his lifetime
JRD Tata never built a house one calls his own. As per JRD Tata
everything belonged to God Almighty.
JRD Tata believed
from the very beginning human beings were only a caretaker... a
trustee...to look after what was entrusted to us. Human beings were
never supposed to infringe on rights of God Almighty... which people
in present times indulge everyday!
of spiritual path need living life as a true Karma Yogi! For reaching
stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)... living life as a Nishakama
karma Yogi was necessitated! Unless we burnt portion of our karma
in totality... we never establish control over five senses and mind!
of a true Nishakama Karma Yogi in present times... the Kali Yuga...
the Dark Age... the metal age is difficult but not impossible! By
establishing absolute control over five senses and the mind I finally
realized God in 1993 at 37 years of age!
