Summary of Kayena Vaca Shlokam

This shloka prays and builds the attitude of complete devotion to the Lord as we move forward each day of our lives. Most of us go through the various activities of life. In our ignorance, we take responsibility for activities, and when the results do not meet our expectations, we become sad and depressed. One of the most powerful ways to achieve spirituality is to perform every action as a doer. If the mindset is that I have to do an activity because it is my duty, I don’t worry about the results. Just as a soldier, as an agent of the country, kills on the battlefield and is not punished for any action, there are no consequences when we act as a supreme agent. By the way, any action performed with a sense of wonder has a karmic effect with a strong potential for rebirth due to that action. However, any action undertaken with a true feeling that I must serve humanity or that this activity serves a greater purpose beyond my selfishness will have no karmic effects.

Final Conclusion: This shlokam is a great way to reduce our karmic footprint while surrendering to the Lord.
