अध्याय ३: श्लोक २६-२७ - कर्म और आधारभूत गुण

Chapter 3: Verse 26-27

न बुद्धिभेदं जनयेदज्ञानां कर्मसङ्गिनाम्।
जोषयेत्सर्वकर्माणि विद्वान्युक्तः समाचरन्॥३-२६॥

The wise should not confuse the mind of ignorant who are attached to fruits of action. He should engage them in all actions while performing his (own) duties well (inspire others by performing his own duties efficiently without attachment).

Lesson: A role model does not divert the mind of his followers from their devotion to action. Through his own examples of good accomplishments he however, guides them to act likewise.

परमात्मा के स्वरूप में अटल स्थित हुए ज्ञानी पुरुष को चाहिए कि वह शास्त्रविहित कर्मों में आसक्ति वाले अज्ञानियों बुध्दि में भ्रम अर्थात कर्मों में अश्रध्दा उत्पन्न न करे, किन्तु स्वयं शास्त्रविहित समस्त कर्म भलीभांति करता हुआ उनसे भी वैसे ही करवाए। ॥२६॥

Subject: Actions and Constituent Qualities

प्रकृतेः क्रियमाणानि गुणैः कर्माणि सर्वशः।
अहङ्कारविमूढात्मा कर्ताहमिति मन्यते॥२७॥

All actions are performed by (one’s) constituent qualities. Yet, the deluded (ego-centric) person thinks, “I am the doer”.

Lesson: Actions be deemed as born of nature and temperamental. The performer is just an instrument, not a doer. Having liberated from the ego of doing action, perform your duty with ease.

वास्तव में सम्पूर्ण कर्म सब प्रकार से प्रकृति के गुणों द्वारा किए जाते हैं, तो भी जिसका अन्त:करण अहंकार से मोहित हो रहा है, ऐसा अज्ञानी 'मैं कर्ता हूं ऐसा मानता है। ॥२७॥
