Fifteen first verses of this chapter of the Bhagavad Gita (Yoga Philosophy)

Arjuna said:

1. O Mahabahu! I would like to learn both the secret of Sannyasa and that of Tyaga, O Hrishikesha, O Keshinishudana.

The Lord said:

2. Renunciation of actions arising from selfish desire is known by the sages as Sannyasa. The abandonment of the fruit of all action is called by the sages Tyaga.

3. Some thoughtful people say: “Every action must be abandoned as an evil"; others say: “The action of sacrifice, charity and austerity must not be renounced."

4. Hear my decision about Tyaga, O Bharatasattama. Tyaga has also been described as being of three kinds, O mightiest of men.

Bhagavad Gita XVIII-5. Acts of sacrifice, charity and austerity should not be abandoned, they purify the wise

5. Acts of sacrifice, charity and austerity cannot be abandoned; must be carried out. Sacrifice, charity and austerity are purifying for the wise.

6. But even these actions must be done abandoning all attachment and fruit; such, O Partha, is my best and most considered opinion.

7. It is not correct to give up the work assigned to each one; His abandonment, arising from deception, is said to be Tamas.

8. He who abandons the action, considering it thankless and for fear of straining his limbs, will never obtain the fruit of abandonment, because his abandonment is Rajas.

Bhagavad Gita (Yoga Philosophy) XVIII-1. Learn the secret of sannyasa and tyaga

9. But when the assigned work is performed with a sense of duty and with abandonment of attachment and fruits, O Arjuna, that abandonment is considered Sattva.

10. That wise man, who practices abandonment and who has expelled all doubts from himself, who neither despises the unpleasant action nor clings to the pleasant action, is full of Sattva

11. It is not possible for an incarnated being to abandon the actions completely; but he who renounces the rewards of actions, he is truly called a renunciate (tyagi).

12. For those who do not practice abandonment, it accumulates. When they die, the fruit of their actions is of three types: unpleasant, pleasant and mixed; but it never (accumulates) for the Sannyasins (renouncers).

13. Learn from Me, O Mahabahu, the five factors mentioned in the Sankhya doctrine for the performance of all action:

14. The field (body), the doer, the various senses, the different functions, and the fifth, and last, the Invisible (the presiding deity).

15. Whatever action a man performs with his body, speech and mind, whether right or wrong, is due to these five causes.
