Karma Yoga

Karma Yoga is the yoga of action, with an attitude of selfless service; its all in the attitude with which you approach the work. It involves engaging in action or activities without attachment to the outcome or expecting a reward, but for the purpose of enhancing the common good. Karma Yoga also means striving for excellence in the work. It is the yoga of service toward others as an expression of one’s true, selfless nature without attachment to the ego.

The work of the Prison Yoga Project could be considered Karma Yoga. Mohandas (Mohatma) Ghandi and Mother Teresa are exemplary karma yogis.
