Many people raise question over the relevance of this statement in the real
The answer to this question is very simple and can be answered by a statement only, like “ You will go to jail definitely”
The complete paragraph has given us a clear statement. This was just an example.
This is what is happening when you don’t read the statement before and after the verse in which Shri Krishna stated
कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन ।
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भुर्मा ते संगोऽस्त्वकर्मणि ॥2.47 // karm karo fal ki chinta mat karo//
There are 18 chapters in Gita and about I think close to 700 verse without reading at least most of them we are stressing on one point which doesn’t make any sense.
Gita is a book, not a paragraph, don’t try to get a summary of a book from one paragraph.
Gita also say this
योगस्थः कुरु कर्माणि सङ्गं त्यक्त्वा धनञ्जय।
सिद्ध्यसिद्ध्योः समो भूत्वा समत्वं योग उच्यते।।2.48।।
meaning yoga-sthah—steadfast in yoga; kuru—perform; karmani—your duty; sangam—attachment; tyaktva—having abandoned; dhananjaya—O Dhananjaya; siddhi-asiddhyoh—in success and failure; samah—the same; bhutva—having become; samatvam—evenness of mind; yogah-yoga; ucyate—is called.
Here in the above statement, verse 2.47, Shri Krishna is saying to Arjun
“You have control over performing your act, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never be a slave to the outcome of an act but still, you should not be demotivated to perform your action.
Be in a state of yoga, Arjuna. Perform your duty and abandon all attachment to success or failure. Such evenness of mind is called yoga”
“ Perform your duties without being in the dilemma of emerging out as a winner or looser”
Don’t presume Krishna to be some kind of Allien or Superhuman, but feel him as a human with superb clarity of thoughts.
