<< Chapter 2 verse 49


buddhi-yukto jahātīha
ubhe sukṛta-duṣkṛte
tasmād yogāya yujyasva
yogaḥ karmasu kauśalam

‘Even here, the wisdom-united (man) casts off both good as well as bad deeds. Hence strive for that mode (yoga). (Wisdom)-mode in works is cleverness.’

Whoso acts under the protection afforded by wisdom-yoga (or wise or right performance of work as explained), is divorced from his myriad, age-cumulated, good and evil deeds, the cause of bondage. Hence, wed thyself to that firm wisdom. When acts are being performed, the performance under this understanding, with mind preserved in calmness, is indeed great cleverness. The cultivation of this understanding requires enormous effort, indeed.

>> Chapter 2 verse 51
