Daily Bhagavad Gita Message  

Gita 18-49

asaktabuddhiḥ sarvatra jitātmā vigataspṛhaḥ
naiṣkarmyasiddhim paramām sannyāsenādhigacchati

He whose intellect is unattached alround, who has subdued his body, who is freed from desire-- that man, attains the supreme state of freedom from action (Actionless state),  through Sankhyyoga (the Discipline of Knowledge), .


By becoming 'Asaktabuddhiḥ' (whose intellect is unattached), sarvatra jitātmā (who has subdued his body), and vigataspṛhaḥ' (who is free from thirst for enjoyment)-- one attains to perfection in Karmayoga (Gītā 2/71). By attaining perfection in Karmayoga, the spiritual aspirant becomes fit for the path of Knowledge. With the discipline of Sankhyayoga he attains to the state of 'naiṣkarmyasiddhi' (actionlessness). 'naiṣkarmyasiddhi' means- actions are always become inaction, in other words, while performing action; the aspirant should remain untainted (detached, free from bondage). Non-performance of actions is not 'naiṣkarmya' (actionlessness) (Gītā 3/4), in fact it is necessary for an aspirant to perform action (Gītā 6/3).
Karmayoga and Jñānayoga are the paths (sadhans or disciplines), but Bhaktiyoga (devotion) is the Sadhya (goal). Therefore, by Karmayoga and Jñānayoga one attains naiṣkarmyasiddhi' but by Bhaktiyoga one attains 'param naiṣkarmyasiddhi' (supreme actionlessness).
