भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 10

न द्वेष्ट्यकुशलं कर्म कुशले नानुषज्जते।
त्यागी सत्त्वसमाविष्टो मेधावी छिन्नसंशयः।।18.10।।

।।18.10।। जो पुरुष अकुशल (अशुभ) कर्म से द्वेष नहीं करता और कुशल (शुभ) कर्म में आसक्त नहीं होता? वह सत्त्वगुण से सम्पन्न पुरुष संशयरहित? मेधावी (ज्ञानी) और त्यागी है।।

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The qualified aspirant would never shun or disregard prescribed Vedic activities merely because they contained an element of discomfort or difficulty. Such a qualified one would simply look at it as tapah or penance because the merit of meritorious austerities performed over the course of many lives are not to be wasted in the temporary enjoyments of the heavenly planets. The qualified aspirant who knows the fundamental principles of karma or reactions to actions and bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to the Supreme Lord, joyfully surrender all their actions without any desire for rewards for the satisfaction of Lord Krishna or any of His authorised incarnations and expansions as revealed in Vedic scriptures. In this way one is not enslaved into bondage by karma because prescribed Vedic activities unto the Supreme Lord do not incur or accrue any karma whatsoever at any time in any situation or circumstance.
