[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 18-07

 

||  Shree Hari  ||

Srimad Bhagavad Gita

Eighteenth Chapter

  
                                                   18-7

niyatasya tu sannyāsaḥ karmaṇo nopapadyate
mohāt tasyaparityāgastāmasaḥ parikīrtitaḥ

Verily, the renunciation of any prescribed duty is not proper; such abandonment  (tyaaga) if done out of delusion (ignorance) is declared to be Tāmasika (of the mode of ignorance).

Comment:

All duties sanctioned by scriptures are called 'Vihit Karma'. Among those actions also, the duties which are necessary to be discharged based on one's Varna (caste), Ashrama (stage in life) and according to the situation are called 'Niyata Karma' (obligatory duty). As compared to 'Vihit Karma', there is a special responsibility to discharge one's 'Niyata Karma'. For example, someone is given responsibility as a watchman and another to supply water at a water-hut, these are assigned duties or 'Niyata Karma'. Abandoning one's duty or 'Niyata Karma' is considered as higher degree of fault. Abandoning one's duty leads to commotion in society as is being seen in today's world. Therefore, a person should not abandon his duty regardless whether he gets paid more or less for it or whether it is more comfortable or less. If the duty is abandoned out of delusion, it is Tāmasika abandonment and as a result such a person sinks downwards to lower births and lower regions — 'adho gacchanti tāmasāḥ' (Gītā 14/18).
