Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam
योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् |
Lord Krishna talks to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita about “Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam” – Yoga is excellence at work. This verse teaches us to perform our allocated duty in an excellent manner.
Yogah denotes the union of the self to the supreme consciousness. The term Karmasu implies working with devotion; however, the Kaushalam means working with dedication and without attachment.
One must perform one’s duty without any attachment with the outcomes. If someone is severely attached to the work results, one cannot become excel in his work, and consequently, could not qualify in the category of Yoga.
If we work with elegance, courage, and skill, our Body-Mind-Soul will co-operate with our hands. It implies that Yoga is nothing but excellence in work, what we do or perform without worrying about the results. Any work becomes worthy if carried out with full concentration, devotion, and skills and helps us become valuable to others and society. All the work or duty we perform to be in Yoga categories must be of the right intentions and should be for the right good.
