Geeta Chanting Yajna 2023

Bhagavad Geeta Chapter 3: Karma Yogaḥ

Date: April 8, 2023 (Saturday)

Chapter 3 of Bhagavad Geeta shall be the topic of study this year. Following is the summary of Chapter 3 karma yoga.

In this chapter, Bhagavan Krishna talks about how any action can be a glorious sacrifice if only it is undertaken with the required purity of motive, with a spirit of surrender, and with the deep emotion of love. The chapter teaches how we should do our duty, yet not bound by it. Inaction out of fear of failure, rejection etc is not an option. The chapter dwells into the philosophy of “Karma” and “Karma phala” which is one of the core tenets of Sanatana Dharma.
