Outline of Chapter III Yoga of Action (Philosophy Karma) Bhagavad Gita Course

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

Arjuna said:

1. O Janardana, if Thou hold that the attitude of detachment is superior to action, then why, O Keshava, do Thou urge me to such dreadful action?

2. Thou seem to confuse my understanding with Thy disconcerting words; Tell me, therefore, with certain words, how I can achieve salvation.

The Lord said:

3. I have spoken to you before, O sinless man, of two attitudes in this world: that of the Sankhyas, by the Yoga of Knowledge (Jnana) and that of the Yogis, by Karma Yoga (Yoga of action).

4. Man does not match the actionless state of Brahman by mere non-performance of work, nor does he attain perfection by renunciation only.

5. Because nothing remains inactive even for a moment; everyone acts obliged by the Gunas inherent to Prakriti

6. He who represses the organs of action, but allows the mind to reside in sensory objects, such a person, totally deluded, is a hypocrite.

7. But he, O Arjuna, who, keeping all his senses under the control of the mind, surrenders himself to Karma Yoga (Yoga of Action), without attachment, that man attains excellence,

Bhagavad Gita III-4 Karma Yoga of Selfless Action

8. Do your assigned duty; because action is superior to inaction; even normal life would not be possible with inaction.

9. This world of men suffers the slavery of all actions, except those that are done as a sacrifice; To this end, O Kaunteya, perform the action without attachment.

10. Along with the sacrifice, the Lord of beings created humanity, declaring: «Thus you will multiply; May this be for you the giver of all your desires.

11. «With this you will be able to please the gods and have the gods please you; Thus you please each other so that you can achieve the greatest good.

12. “Pleased by the sacrifice, the gods will grant you the desired blessings." He who enjoys his gifts without offering them anything, he is a true thief.

13. The righteous man who eats the residue of the sacrifice is freed from all without, but the wicked who cook only for themselves, they eat without.

14. Life is born from food, food is born from rain; From sacrifice comes rain and sacrifice is the result of action.

15. Action emanates from Brahman and Brahman from the Imperishable; hence the omnipresent Brahman is always firmly established in sacrifice.

Liberation through Karma Yoga (Bhagavad Gita)

He who has acquired Brahma-Jnana, or knowledge of Brahman, sees everything as Brahman. In all the different manifestations of nature, he sees Atman, and therefore considers everything equally. For him everything that exists, regardless of its name and form, is made of a single substance: Brahman (Atman). That is why he has love and compassion for all creatures on our planet.

Bhagavad Gita V-18. He who has acquired Brahma-Jnana, or knowledge of Brahman, sees everything as Brahman
