Karma Yoga

The Ideal man is he who ,in the midst of the greatest silence and solitude ,finds the intensest activity,and in the midst of the intensest activity finds the silence and solitude of the desert.He has learnt the secret of restraint,he has controlled himself.He goes through the streets of a big city with all its Traffic and his mind is as calm as if he were in a cave,where not a sound could reach him;and he is intensely working all the time.That is the ideal of Karma-Yoga,and if you have attained to that you have really learnt the secret of work.

~The complete works of Swami Vivekananda.
