Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 16

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 16

तत्रैवं सति कर्तारमात्मानं केवलं तु यः।
पश्यत्यकृतबुद्धित्वान्न स पश्यति दुर्मतिः।।18.16।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।18.16।। अब इस स्थिति में जो पुरुष असंस्कृत बुद्धि होने के कारण? केवल शुद्ध आत्मा को कर्ता समझता हैं? वह दुर्मति पुरुष (यथार्थ) नहीं देखता है।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

So because verily the jiva or embodied being is subject to the sanction of paramatma the Supreme Soul, one should never consider themselves as independent nor think of themselves as the doer of anything. Lord Krishna states that one who erroneously does so will be durmati one whose intelligence is perverted and deluded and thus bewildered is oblivious that other elements are the essential factors in manifesting all activities.
