      Feel, as you do your daily duties, that you are only
      a witness of all that goes on around you, of even
      your own actions. This is called Sakshi Bhav. You should
      inwardly realize that you are different from the active
      principle in you. This the method of Vedanta.

      There is the other - easier, but equally potent - the method
      of Nimitta Bhav. Feel that the Lord alone is the real doer of
      all actions and that you are an instrument in His hands. Your
      actions will be transformed into worship of the Lord, and you
      will not be bound to them. Work without expectation of any
      reward and without egoism. Root out the idea of agency; feel,
      "I am not the doer". You will be freed from the shackles of
      Karma. You will not accumulate new Karma. Allow your Prarabdha
      Karma (fructifying works) to work out; and you will attain
      liberation.
