karmaṇy abhipravṛtto ‘pi
naiva kiñcit karoti saḥ

Having given up(tyaktva) desire for any karma phala(fruitive results of actions), always satisfied(nitya-truptah) and independent(nisashritah); even though being fully engaged in karma, he does not do anything.
How to attain inaction in action, is told here –
- giving up attachment for the karma phala, meaning giving up the notion of – I will only perform karma for the sake of the merits, I will not perform my duty because it is inconvenient.
- Being satisfied – satisfaction is achieved when one is happy with whatever one has and there is no greed for more or fear of losing.
- Independent – not taking shelter from anything or anybody for either attaining more or maintaing whatever one has. Taking refuge in God alone.
Divya – karma phala asangha – accepting anything(good or bad) that comes our way.
