“The Sanskrit word for ‘action’ is ‘karma’, derived from the root ‘kri’ which means ‘to do’.
One does action and gets remunerated for it, in turn transferring
this remuneration to others for work done by them.
Thus, fruit has arisen out of action, and action out of fruit.
From time immemorial, life has been conducted in this manner.
This is called the wheel of karma.
To act with the motive of gaining fruits is to invite bondage.
Relinquishing the fruits frees us from all miseries.”
– Swami Rama
