In this book the author, Swami Tyagananda, has attempted to bring together Swami Vivekananda’s insights related to the study and practice of karma yoga. The book can be read as a commentary on Swamiji’s teachings on karma yoga. The endnotes in this book point to glowing words [in Swamiji’s karma yoga lectures] in order to encourage the reader to make an independent study of the original books. The structure of this book is simple. The introductory chapter explores the meaning and scope of yoga. It also examines Vivekananda’s classification of yoga into four categories, showing how it cuts across religious boundaries and provides a genuinely universal way to understand spiritual disciplines. The second chapter examines the elements of the karma theory essential to understanding the method of karma yoga. Each of Vivekananda’s four yogas has a “key” with which to unlock its potential. The key to karma yoga is detachment, which is the focus of the third chapter.

The key to karma yoga is detachment, which is the focus of the third chapter. While the first three chapters deal with understanding karma yoga, the fourth chapter is about the karma yoga practice. Even a little practice will yield results that will encourage the student to walk the walk to freedom with greater faith, hope and enthusiasm. That is what the fifth and final chapter is about: results.

A re-reading of the Hindu classic, the Bhagavad Gita, a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and his charioteer Lord Krishna. This episode which occurs in the Sanskrit epic, The Mahabharata, is often read for its own sake and given the status of a holy scripture by Hindus. Reviews: "This is a brilliant book that I recommend wholeheartedly. It picks a central thought from each of the Bhagavad Gita's 18 chapters and uses that to communicate deep insights about life and meaning. People who wish to understand the Gita or other Vedic texts will love it, and it will also be useful to those who are experts." Professor Subhash Kak, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK "... Srinivasan's commentary is itself a gem. It combines an accessible, easy style of writing with a rigorous translation by a master of the Sanskrit language (and also includes the original Sanskrit text itself, for those with the ability to follow along and to come to their own conclusions regarding its meaning and import). Including references to earlier interpretations within the Hindu tradition, this work stands in a distinguished lineage of scriptural commentary.... I recommend it highly!" Professor Jeffery Long, Elizabethtown College, PA "This modest volume succeeds admirably in raising the right questions and pointing to insightful answers." Swami Tyagananda, Sri Ramakrishna Vedanta Society, Boston and Hindu Chaplain at MIT and Harvard. "Readers will surely benefit from a study of the book. There is an appendix to the book, containing the text of some earlier publications of the author. The book should certainly be prescribed reading for students, especially the children of non-resident Indians living outside India." Vedanta Kesari; May 2016
