Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Completely devoid of all cravings for the rewards of ones actions and endeavours even up to desiring entry to svargaloka or the heavenly spheres. Those who have indeed become accomplished in karma yoga or prescribed Vedic activities without desiring rewards simply let their body, mind and senses perform their natural functions as instruments to effect atma-suddhi or self-purification which breaks the bonds of the past deeds which bind the atma to samsara or the cycle of birth and death. Karma yoga should be performed solely for this purpose and not for obtaining heavenly enjoyments in svargaloka.
