Arjun & Krishna on Bhagavad Gita

Arjuna said:
I desire to know severally, O mighty-armed, the essence of Sannyasa, O Hrishikesa, as also Tyaga, O Kesinisudana (slayer of Kesi).

The Blessed Lord said:
Sages understand Sannyasa to be the renouncing of works with desires; the wise declare the abandonment of the fruits of all works as Tyaga. Acts of sacrifice, gift and austerity should not be relinquished, but should be performed; sacrifice, gift, and also austerity are the purifiers of the wise .
These five causes, O mighty-armed, know thou from Me as declared in the Sankhya system for the accomplishment of all actions (13). The body, the actor, the various organs, the several functions of various sorts and the presiding deities also, the fifth. He who is free from the notion of egoism, whose intellect is not affected (by good or evil), though he kills these people, he kills not, nor is bound by the action.

Hare Krishna !!
