- Perform duties that are prescribed according to our skill and nature.
- Perform those duties for the Lord’s satisfaction.
If we don’t perform our activities as a sacrifice to lord, they create new karmas and bind us to this material world.
When we offer our prescribed activities to the lord, we become free from the bondage.
- Don’t let your attachments and aversion control you. If you do, they will become the stumbling blocks on the path of self-realization. That is, as long as we’re have material attachments and aversions born from our false ego, we would never be able to see the Self; who we are, and we won’t be able remain in the awareness of the self consistently.
- To control attachments and aversions, which our senses experience when they come in contact with the sense objects, we should follow the regulative principles under the direction of a bonafide spiritual master.
One who understands that Krishna, the creator, the king, has no duty to perform, nor he desires any results of his actions, such a person doesn’t become entangled reactions or results of his actions.
Krishna creates universes but remains aloof from it.
One who sees inaction in action and action in inaction is intelligent among men, and he is in the transcendental position, although engaged in all sorts of activities.
One is understood to be in full knowledge whose every endeavor is devoid of desire for sense gratiﬁcation. He is said by sages to be a worker for whom the reactions of work have been burned up by the ﬁre of perfect knowledge.
Abandoning all attachment to the results of his activities, ever satisﬁed and independent, he performs no fruitive action, although engaged in all kinds of undertakings.
Even if you are considered to be the most sinful of all sinners, when you are situated in the boat of transcendental knowledge you will be able to cross over the ocean of miseries.
As a blazing ﬁre turns ﬁrewood to ashes, O Arjuna, so does the ﬁre of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions to material activities.
One who understands that he is an instrument of karmas, and to be free of them, he who makes Krishna the center of his thinking, feeling, willing, and doing, becomes free from the material bondages, that is, he becomes liberated.
