Lyrics… (with audio…)
Chapter 18, verse 11
Na hi Dehabhrita Sakyaam
Tyaktum Karmanyasheshata: |
Sa tyagityabhi dhiyate ||
Meaning: It is absolutely impossible for one who has a body to renounce all karmas. But only one who sacrifices the fruits of karma is called a real sacrificer.
Bhashya: It is mentioned in Bhagavad Gita that man should not give up karma for any time. Therefore, one who performs karma for the sake of Krishna and offers everything to Krishna without experiencing the fruit of karma himself is called a true sacrificer. Many of the members of our International Krishna Consciousness Society, whether in their offices, factories or elsewhere, work hard whatever they earn, whatever they earn goes to the organization. Such Mahatmas are actually monks. That is, they are the ones who are staying in the monastery. In this sloka it is clarified how the fruits of karma should be sacrificed and for what purpose the fruits of karma should be released.
