(19) Karmayoga – 3

Om, Tat, Sat is mantra potent

To remember Singular Omnipotent

 

Say “Om” before starting action

Remember it is all for Creator alone

 

“Tat” while performing action

With no desire for its fruition

 

“Sat” to cover up defects in action

And duality of actor and action

 

Perform karma like fire ritual

Offering actions to Divine Eternal

 

That is how to purify worldly mind

For liberation from life unkind

 

Karmas as duties warranted

Should not be discarded

 

Karma towards desire worldly

Should be avoided completely

 

It forces experiencing fruit

Binding, whether sour, sweet

 

Don’t discard karma because it’s taxing

Don’t label good or bad karma, judging

 

Discard doership, fruit, not action

If one kills a thousand, it’s no sin

 

Robots driven we are by divine design

Mind reacting needlessly to will sovereign

 

Do not bother about future or past

Keep doing what is right in present
