Nishakama Karma


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.

The best-known 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!

King Janaka 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 about!

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.

JRD Tata... 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!

The travelers 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!

Living life 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!
