[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 18-11


||  Shree Hari  ||

Srimad Bhagavad Gita

Eighteenth Chapter


na hi dehabhṛtā śakyaṁ tyaktuṁ karmāṇyaśeṣataḥ
yastu karmaphalatyāgī sa tyāgītyabhidhīyate

It is indeed impossible for any embodied being to abandon actions entirely, but, he who relinquishes the fruit of action is verily, called a relinquisher (renunciate, tyaagi).


Renunciation of 'fruit of action' means to relinquish the desire for the fruit of action. The reason is that the fruit for action cannot be renounced; as-- the body is also the fruit of action, then how this can be renounced? How can one relinquish the satisfaction after having eaten food? Having farmed the land, how can the crop be renounced? Therefore the aspirant should relinquish the desire for fruit. By relinquishing the desire for fruit, the aspirant would not become happy or sad. Therefore in the Gītā, the renunciation of the desire for the fruit of action has been called as relinquishment of fruit of action. In Karmayoga there is renunciation of desire for fruit and in Jnanayoga, there is a renunciation of doer-ship.
In fact, the external relinquishment is not real relinquishment but the internal relinquishment is the real relinquishment. If a person, having renounced the world externally, goes to a solitary place, in a forest or Himalayas, even then the body which is the seed of the world, it still remains with him. When a person dies, all things, persons  including his body are relinquished but after dying he does not attain salvation. Therefore, our internal desires-sense of mineness-attachment bind us, the world does not bind us. Therefore, when we do nothing for ourselves, our attachment with actions is renounced— ' yajñāyācarataḥ karma samagraṁ pravilīyate' (Gītā 4/23). When someone gets into meditation, then he loses the attachment with the external activities. But the meditation is also an action, therefore, from meditation state also one gets out of it; because in meditation state, there is relationship with the causal body which is in the Prakriti (Nature).
