Daily Bhagavad Gita Message  

Gita 18-47

śreyānsvadharmo viguṇaḥ paradharmātsvanuṣṭhitāt
svabhāvaniyataṁ karma kurvannāpnoti kilbiṣam

Better is one's own duty (dharma) , though devoid of merit, than the duty (dharma) of another even if well performed. He who carries out the duty ordained by his own nature, incurs no sin.


By performing one's own natural duty, sin may occur, but the aspirant does not incur this sin; because in incurring sin, the main cause is the motivation or the 'feeling' behind the action rather than the 'action'. Therefore, sin is incurred, not by actions but by having sentiments of selfishness and pride.

From Gita Prabodhani in Hindi, by Swami Ramsukhdasji
