Here is the concept of Nishkam Karma explained via the context of Bhagvad Gita.

Nishkam Karma Explained 

Nishkam Karma According To Bhagvad Gita
Nishkam Karma According To Bhagvad Gita 

In the philosophy of Karma yoga, there are two central concepts: Sakam Karma and Nishkam Karma. 

Sakam Karma must take action under the inspiration of himself for the purpose of gratitude or for good. 

Nishkam karma Vs Sakham Karma

Nishkam Karma opposes Sakam Karma and is regarded as an unselfish act without the hidden inner hope of saying “thank you” or beauty returns.

In the end, Nishkam Karma is considered to be not based on the consequences of one's actions in life, but on the motives of self-sacrifice and love.

The karmic concept is focused on any yogi acts in the world for the benefit of others and not for their own benefit.

Nishkam Karma In Bhagvad Gita 

Nishkam Karma, finds an important place in the Bhagavad Gita, the central text of the Mahabharata, where Krishna promotes the 'Nishkam Karma Yoga' (Yoga for Non-Dedicated Practices) as a good way to see the Truth. 

A shared task done without expectations, objectives, or thinking about its consequences often clears your mind and gradually qualifies one to see the importance of reason and the benefits of discarding the work itself. 

Nishkam Karma Explained via Verses of Bhagvad Gita 

These ideas are clearly expressed in the following verses:

Only to do an act you have the right and never in any of its fruits; the fruits of labor should not be your motive; and let none of you be obsessed with doing anything.

- Verse 47, Chapter 2-Samkhya theory and Yoga practice, Bhagavadgita

"Prepared yoga, do your work, O Winner of wealth (Arjuna), leave the attachment, in the same sense to success and failure, because mental balance is called yoga"

- Verse 2.48

"Physically, mentally, mentally, and even emotionally, Yogs perform a purifying act, which has ceased to engage. The one who is loaded into Yoga, who has left the fruit of the action, finds lasting peace...."

- Verse 5.11 

We hope you are now clear on Nishkam Karma.
