*Don’t Fail To Do Nitya Karmas*
Karmas are of three types: nitya, naimittika and kamya.
Nitya karmas are actions of bathing, eating, excreting. Naimittika karmas are actions performed by one who is nimitta, an instrument of God and guru. Kamya karmas are actions or work done with a selfish desire or motive.
Nitya karma has to be performed by all, including a sannyasin, because he still lives in the body.
The practice of Nishkama Karma Yoga destroys sins and impurities of the mind and causes Chitta-suddhi (purity of Antahkarana). Knowledge of the Self dawns on a pure mind.Knowledge of the Self is the only direct means to freedom.
Nishkama Karma Yoga is selfless service unto humanity- The important point is to serve the humanity without any attachment or egoism. The central teaching of the Gita is non-attachment to work. Sri Krishna says: “Work, work incessantly. Your duty is to work, but not to expect the fruits thereof.” Do vigorous service for some time. You will grasp the spirit of Nishkama Karma.
