Understanding Gita – 83

Chapter 4 – JnanaYoga

Shloka 23

TEXT 23

gata-saṅgasya muktasya
jñānāvasthita-cetasaḥ
yajñāyācarataḥ karma
samagraṁ pravilīyate

Unattached to the modes of material nature(gata-sangha), whose mind is situated in jnana(transcendental knowledge), acting only for the sake of yajna(done for the Lord), his karma will totally melt away(merges into the transcendence).

Karma performed with full knowledge, not for the material gains, without likes and dislikes, but only for the sake of Lord, will not entangle one in bondage. Such a karma will be dissolved, meaning there is nothing generating from that karma there after.

Swamiji: gata-sangha – not attached to proprietorship, results; or insistent on how a karma should be performed.

Yajna – 1. the balance of give and take in our life. 2. Lord’s name

Divya: yajna – burning our impurities in the fire of knowledge.
