Understanding Gita – 104

Chapter 5 – Sanyasa Yoga

Shloka 3


jñeyaḥ sa nitya-sannyāsī
yo na dveṣṭi na kāṅkṣati
nirdvandvo hi mahā-bāho
sukhaṁ bandhāt pramucyate

The one who never hates or desires should be known as a nitya-sanyasi(one who is always in renunciation).  He will be free from all dualities, O mighty armed, and easily liberated from bondage(bandhat pramuchyate).

In the previous verse Lord says karma yoga(acing in devotion) is better than karma tyaga(renouncing actions).

A person who neither hates nor desires anything, will be free from dvandva(disturbance in the mind). Even though he acts he doesn’t get caught up in it, as he is not acting for the results. He can easily come out of material bondage.

Action without expectations helps one to get out of material bondage easily, than mere mental speculations or theoretical knowledge.
