    He who shrinks not from action which does not bring lasting happiness, nor gets attached to that which is conducive to blessedness — imbued with the quality of goodness, he has all his doubts resolved, is intelligent and a man of true renunciation. Since all actions cannot be given up in their entirety by anyone possessing a body, he alone who renounces the fruit of actions is called a man of renunciation. Welcome, unwelcome and mixed — threefold, indeed, is the fruit that accrues hereafter from the actions of the unrenouncing. But there is none ever for those who have renounced. He whose intellect is unattached everywhere, whose thirst for enjoyment has altogether disappeared and who has subdued his mind, reaches through the path of knowledge the consummation of actionlessness. Established in identity with Brahma (who is truth, consciousness and bliss solidified) and cheerful in mind, such a person no longer grieves nor craves for anything. Through supreme devotion to Him, he comes to know Him in reality and enters into Supreme Being. The Karmyogi, however, who depends on Him, attains by His grace the eternal, imperishable state, even though performing all actions. Mentally resigning all his duties to Him and taking recourse of Yoga in the form of evenmindedness he should be solely devoted to Him and constantly give his mind to Him. God abides in the heart of all creatures, causing them to revolve by His illusive power seated as those beings are in the vehicle of the body. One should take shelter in Him alone with all one's being. By His mere grace that person shall attain supreme peace and the eternal state.
