Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur

The Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur is a public engineering institution established by the government of India in 1951.

The motto of IIT Kharagpur is “Yoga Karmashu Kaushalam” .

The motto literally translates to “Excellence in action is Yoga” essentially implying that doing your work well is (true) yoga.

It is sourced to Sri Krishna’s discourse to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita.

This quote in its larger context of Gita urges man to acquire equanimity because such a soul endowed with the mind of equanimity allows him to shed the effects of his good and evil deeds in this world itself.
