Swami Satyananda: Karma Sannyasa
How is it possible to live the life of a householder and yet maintain a balance between external and internal growth? In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna tells Arjuna, there is no harm in action, the danger lies in attachment and dependence on the fruits of the actions performed. If you can understand this concept and implement it in your daily life, then you will gradually experience a higher quality of experience. This is essentially the concept of karma sannyasa; live life fully, participate in all events externally, but internally maintain an attitude of non-doership. Explaining how closely our lives are governed by attachment, desire and ambition, Karma Sannyasa describes methods to transform these patterns and realise a happier outlook through the blossoming of spiritual awareness.
The book focuses on family life and relationships, wealth, karma, self-respect and lifestyle, describing the process of realising spirituality through everyday life experiences.
