7. Karma arises from desire ridden actions which in turn leads to bondage. Therefore, one should constantly be on guard and live responsibly.

People, who lack discretion, engage in desire-ridden actions, which produce karma and lead to their bondage,ignorance and delusion. Karma is not resolved until its causes are fully understood and arrested.The idea of performing actions without desires for their fruit and offering them to God as a sacrifice, this is the essence of karma sanyasa yoga. Action means any mental, physical, voluntary or involuntary action, including those which are performed by the organs in the body.Since one cannot live without performing actions even for a moment, karma yoga becomes a continuous practice.
