What is action...? What is karma...
In this book, Osho shows us the key which unlocks the door to desireless action - the path of Karma Yoga.
translated from
Hindi : Geeta-Darshan, Adhyaya 3 (गीता-दर्शन, अध्याय ३)
Notes on the translation:
"Osho's discourses in Hindi on the Bhagavad Gita were given in the early 70's over a period of several years, and published in Hindi as a series of 8 voumes, under the title of Geeta-Darshan.
This volume contains Osho's discourses on Adhyaya 3 (Karma Yoga) of the Bhagavad Gita.
Please note that Osho has translated into Hindi and interpreted the original Sanskrit 'shlokas' of the Bhagavad Gita, and refers to them throughout the whole series, not as 'shlokas' , but as 'sutras' . We have maintained his definition.
We have translated the 'sutras' from Hindi into English, hence this translation of the Bhagavad Gita has a unique flavour, which comes from Osho's original translation and interpretation of the 'shlokas' from Sanskrit into Hindi.
In this translation, the 'sutras' follow the same numeration as in the original Sanskrit version of the Bhagavad Gita."

Acknowledgement: We would like to thank Ma Yoga Manju. She has an extensive knowledge of Sanskrit and, being one of the first disciples of Osho, has listened to Osho's Hindi discourses over a period of more than forty years. She has helped us 'draw out' the subtle meanings of Osho's original Hindi talks, as those meanings are often related to ancient Sanskrit words.
