Karma Yoga Sastra -Tilak
THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE ABSOLUTE SELF
Action, which is good from the point of view of respectability, or which has been done with a good intention, or of which the result is good, and by taking the word 'tat' as meaning, Action, which is beyond the above-mentioned Action, that is, which has been performed by giving up the desire for fruit, as and when occasion arises to use that canon, the doctrine of Karma-Yoga can be fully supported on the basis of this description of the Brahman. As that which has been referred to as 'sat' in the canon, is nothing else but the visible world, that is to say, Karma (See the next chapter), this interpretation of the definition of the Brahman in terms of Karma, easily arises out of the original interpretation. There are to be found in the Upanisads other descriptions of the Brahman than 'om-tatsat', " neti neti ', ' saccidananda ' and ' satyasya satyam '; but as they are not necessary for understanding the meaning of the Gita, I have not given them here.
