Simple

yas tv indriyāṇi manasā
niyamyārabhate ’rjuna
karmendriyaiḥ karma-yogam
asaktaḥ sa viśiṣyate

‘Whoso Arjuna! curbing the senses by the mind, disinterestedly practices Karma-Yoga with the organs of action, he is great.’

Inhibiting the senses by mental effort, whoso constrains them to cooperate with him in his endeavours to accomplish ātmā-vision, by performing the Śāstra-enjoined duties, to which, by circumstances of his birth, caste etc., he is fitted, and which come to be naturally facilely performed by his organs, which are as it were made for action, such a person is even more distinguished than the Jñāna-Yogi inasmuch as the path of Karma-Yoga is free from dangers which are incidental to Jñāna-Yoga.

>> Chapter 3 verse 8
