What is Karma Yoga?

Karma yoga is a spiritual practice that draws its roots from the ancient yogic text, the Bhagavad Gita. In it, the definition of karma yoga is described as a selfless action for the benefit of others. It is one of the four paths of yoga, which are Raja yoga (meditation), Bhakti yoga (devotion), Jnana (meditation) yoga, and Karma yoga (action). Following these four paths leads to self-realization and enlightenment.
