भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 9

कार्यमित्येव यत्कर्म नियतं क्रियतेऽर्जुन।

।।18.9।।हे अर्जुन केवल कर्तव्यमात्र करना है -- ऐसा समझकर जो नियत कर्म आसक्ति और फलका त्याग करके किया जाता है? वही सात्त्विक त्याग माना गया है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna concludes this exposition by stating that when prescribed Vedic activities and obligatory rites which are compulsory for all human beings such as following ekadasi which is fasting from all grains and beans on the 11th day during both the waxing and waning moon and is performed in knowledge as a matter of duty without any attachment or desire for rewards is known to be clearly situated in sattva guna the mode of goodness. The Skanda Purana beginning matraha pitraha caiva bhatraha guruha tatha ekadasyantu confirms that all who eat grains on ekadasi can never achieve liberation from material existence and attain communion with the Supreme Lord. So it is for the ultimate benefit of all human beings that it is compulsory not to eat grains on ekadasi and this axiom applies also to all the Vedic ordinances and injunctions.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

It should be understood and clearly comprehended that all prescribed Vedic activities both nitya or eternal and naimittika or occasional are obligatory duties for aspirants seeking moksa or liberation from material existence and communion with the Supreme Lord. These prescribed activities devolve into the specific duties varna and asrama or the stage and class one is situated in. This may be initiated by birth but it is established inherently and qualified by deeds. Actual renunciation is performing such prescribed Vedic activities free from egoism, without any attachment or desire for any rewards. This is real renunciation and is situated in sattva guna the mode of goodness where the source of spiritual realisation commences; properly situated in correct knowledge, untainted by delusion and free from illusion. This theme will appear again in verse 30.
