Bhagavad Gita : अध्याय 5 का श्लोक 12 अथ पंचमोऽध्यायः- कर्मसंन्यासयोग ( सांख्ययोग और कर्मयोग का निर्णय )
युक्तः कर्मफलं त्यक्त्वा शान्तिमाप्नोति नैष्ठिकीम् ।
अयुक्तः कामकारेण फले सक्तो निबध्यते ॥
भावार्थ : कर्मयोगी कर्मों के फल का त्याग करके भगवत्प्राप्ति रूप शान्ति को प्राप्त होता है और सकामपुरुष कामना की प्रेरणा से फल में आसक्त होकर बँधता है॥12॥
The steadily devoted soul attains unadulterated peace because he offers the result of all activities to Me; whereas a person who is not in union with the Divine, who is greedy for the fruits of his labor, becomes entangled.
The difference between a person in Krsna consciousness and a person in bodily consciousness is that the former is attached to Krsna, whereas the latter is attached to the results of his activities. The person who is attached to Krsna and works for Him only is certainly a liberated person, and he is not anxious for fruitive rewards. In the Bhagavatam, the cause of anxiety over the result of an activity is explained as being due to one's functioning in the conception of duality, that is, without knowledge of the Absolute Truth. Krsna is the Supreme Absolute Truth, the Personality of Godhead. In Krsna consciousness, there is no duality. All that exists is a product of Krsna's energy, and Krsna is all good. Therefore, activities in Krsna consciousness are on the absolute plane; they are transcendental and have no material effect. One is, therefore, filled with peace in Krsna consciousness. One who is, however, entangled in profit calculation for sense gratification cannot have that peace. This is the secret of Krsna consciousness—realization that there is no existence besides Krsna is the platform of peace and fearlessness.
