According to Swami Sivananda, Karma Yoga is the practice of offering our actions for the good of the action itself without any personal reward. When the action is done without the expectation of fruits, then all of the negative qualities like egoism, hatred, jealousy, ideas of superiority, and selfishness will begin to vanish. We develop a broad and liberal outlook on life and experience oneness and unity.
“One should never forget the idea that work is worship of God. If one remembers this fact, all work will be found very interesting. The terms ‘menial service’, ‘this work is bad’, ‘that work is good’, will be obliterated from the mind. You will find that all work, when done with the right mental attitude or Bhava, will elevate your mind.” -Swami Sivananda Saraswathi
