Everything is fine but your comment on Kamya Karma is not correct.  Karma
is for Chitta Suddhi only for Advaitins. Not to enjoy some Phala in next
Janma like Svarga. Therefore Kamya Karma should not be done at all. Only
Nitya and naimittika Karmas are allowed. Otherwise we will become like
Meemamsakas or Pracchanna Charvakas interested in enjoyment only.
