karman.yevaadhikaaras the' maa phalesuu kadaachana |
maa karma-phala-hethur bhoor maa the' sango'sthv-akarmani || -II-47 ||
Chapter II -47 -- Thou hast a right to action or work alone, and never to its fruits;
let not the fruit of work be thy motive, let not thy attachment to inaction.
 
\
yoga-sthah: kuru karmaani sangam thyakthvaa dhananjaya |
siddhy-asiddhyoh: samo bhootvaa samathvam yoga uchyate' || -II-48 ||
Chapter II -48 -- Do thy work being steadfast in devotion and abandoning attachment,
O Arjuna ! and being equal in success and failure. This evenness of mind is called Yoga.
\
doore'na hy avaram karma buddh'i-yogaadh dh'ananjaya |
buddh'au saranam annnviccha kr.panaah phala -hethavah: || -II-49 ||
Chapter II -49 -- O' Arjuna mere action performed with attachment is inferior to action
performed with mind poised in evenness. Seek shelter in this state of unperturbed
evenness in a desireless mind. Those who work for selfish gains are indeed pitiable.
\
buddhi-yukto' jahaatheeha ubhe' sukr.tha-dushkr.the' |
thasmaadh yogaaya yujyasva yogah: karmasu kausalam || -II-50 ||
Chapter II -50 -- He who is yoked to his intelligence, abandons
even this world both good and evil (action). Therefore apply thyself
for (acquiring) devotion; devotion is skill in works.
\
 
karma-jam buddhi-yukthaa hi phalam thyakthvaa maneesinah: |
janma-bandha-vinirmukthaah: padam gacchanthy anaamayam || -II-51 ||
Chapter II -51 -- For the wise, whose mind is united to intelligence,
renouncing the fruit born of works, become free from the
bondage of birth, and attain to the seat where there is no disease.
 
\
yadaa the moha-kalilam buddhir vyathitarisyathi |
thadhaa ganthaasi nirve'dham srothavyasya sruthasya cha || -II-52 ||
Chapter II -52 -- When thy intelligence shall cross over the
turbidity of delusion, then shalt thou have indifference to
what has been revealed, and to what is yet to be revealed.
\
sruthi-viprathi pannaa the' yadhaa sthaasyathi nischlaa |
samaadhaav achalaa buddhis thadhaa yogam avaapsyasi || -II-53 ||
Chapter II -53 -- When thy intelligence, perplexed by Vedic texts, shall remain
unmoved and fixed in meditation, then shalt thou attain to Yoga.
