What is Karma Yoga?
Karma Yoga is the "discipline of action" is one of the four pillars of Yoga. Karma yoga focuses on the adherence to duty (dharma) while remaining detached from the reward. It is based on a principal that one can experience salvation (moksha) or love (bhakti) of God by performing their duties in an unselfish manner for the pleasure of the Supreme, which is the welfare of the world.

Volunteering Opportunities at The Meditation Center
The Meditation Center is looking for volunteers who are interested in Karma Yoga opportunities and are able to commit to regular or semi regular Saturday morning participation at the Center. The specific hours are somewhat flexible but we're thinking about 2 to 3 hours between 9AM and noon. The primary focus of this contribution is building cleaning, interior and site maintenance and minor repairs.
