His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


योगसंन्यस्तकर्माणं ज्ञानसञ्छिन्नसंशयम् ।
आत्मवन्तं न कर्माणि निबध्नन्ति धनञ्जय ॥४१॥
ātmavantaṁ na karmāṇi
nibadhnanti dhanañjaya


yoga—devotional service in karma-yoga; sannyasta—renounced; karmāṇam—of the performers; jñāna—knowledge; sañchinna—cut by the advancement of knowledge; saṁśayam—doubts; ātma-vantam—situated in the self; na—never; karmāṇi—work; nibadhnanti—do bind up; dhanañjaya—O conquerer of riches.


Therefore, one who has renounced the fruits of his action, whose doubts are destroyed by transcendental knowledge, and who is situated firmly in the self, is not bound by works, O conqueror of riches.


One who follows the instruction of the Gītā, as it is imparted by the Lord, the Personality of Godhead Himself, becomes free from all doubts by the grace of transcendental knowledge. He, as a part and parcel of the Lord, in full Kṛṣṇa consciousness, is already established in self-knowledge. As such, he is undoubtedly above bondage to action.
