(17) Karma Yoga

My action always in my interest

Often opposite to other’s interest


Causing strife, spoiling relation

Beyond repair, like glass broken


Not acting selflessly at right point

Compassion later serves no point


Act appropriately now in present

Regardless of future or past


For Arjuna, fighting war was right

Given long animosity of the past


Do your duty discarding fruit desire

That karmayoga frees one from fear


Due to desire, cause-effect related

Must act in a way to get fruit desired


If desire not fulfilled, keep trying

That is perpetual karma binding


If no desires remain at death

No coming back to life on earth


Follow this karmayoga sincerely

Break perpetual life cycle worldly
