The other form of bhakti is kamya, which is devotion with the intent to achieve some type of personal gain. It is considered a lower form of bhaki than nishkamya. As the yogi develops on his/her spiritual path, his/her bhakti ideally evolves into nishkamya.
Nishkamya karma refers to the works performed without any motive or desire for a result or fear
of consequence. It entails selfless service, or seva, without
the expectation of thanks or reward. It is key to the Karma yoga path
to enlightenment and liberation.
The yogi who practices nishkamya karma is freed from the three karmas of prarbdha (present actions),
sanchita (all past actions) and agami (future actions that result
from the present) because he/she acts without egoism. As a result, the
yogi is freed through this detachment.
