About- The motto of IIT Kharagpur is “Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam”. This translates to “Excellence in action is Yoga, ” implying that doing your work well is (true) yoga. This can be traced to Sri Krishna’s discourse with Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. In the larger context of the Gita, the quote urges man to acquire equanimity because a mind of equanimity allows him to shed distracting thoughts of the effects of his deeds and concentrate on the task before him. Equanimity is the source of perfection in Karmic endeavors that leads to Salvation.
