TO TREAT LIFE LIKE A PLAY IS KARMAYOGA
A professor of Sanskrit once asked ShriMaharaj, "The Lord says in the Gita: 'To action alone hast thou a right, and never at all to its fruits'. How can one observe this in everyday life?" ShriMaharaj said, "It is a maxim, and one does follow it in everyday life, but one does not realize it. Sometimes one plays a game of cards; many a time one does not get good cards for maybe two or three times in a row. In spite of this, one does not throw the cards down and quit. One continues to play with all diligence with whatever cards one gets in each deal. To retain the state of mind which prevails at that time, in all actions in life, is called Karmayoga. This is what the Lord has told in this verse."
