Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 49

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 2 श्लोक 49

दूरेण ह्यवरं कर्म बुद्धियोगाद्धनञ्जय।
बुद्धौ शरणमन्विच्छ कृपणाः फलहेतवः।।2.49।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।2.49।। इस बुद्धियोग की तुलना में(सकाम) कर्म अत्यन्त निकृष्ट हैं? इसलिये हे धनंजय तुम बद्धि की शरण लो फल की इच्छा करनेवाले कृपण (दीन) हैं।।

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

In the verse Lord Krishna prescribes to endeavour for equanimity revealing that the path is by yoga and by wisdom. Avaram means abominable and durena means to discard; so discarding all fruitive activities one should adhere to spiritual intelligence and remain steadfast in wisdom. One whose only objective is based on fruitive desires wishes to enjoy the rewards of their actions and is degraded. Now begins the summation. For all living entities the Supreme Lord is the only refuge. When this realisation finally dawns upon the intellect of a living entity whether they are ignorant, wise or liberated they surrender unto the Supreme Lord without reservation. Those who in delusion consider themselves the same as the Supreme Lord Krishna who is distinctly different due to His inconceivable potencies and transcendental attributes, descend to the hellish worlds of darkness without a doubt. They are doomed to eternal damnation in hellish conditions. In the Narada Purana it is stated: Those who see a separation in the Supreme Lord Krishna from His name, form, attributes, pastimes, incarnations and those who deride and seek to diminish the glory of the Supreme Lord Krishnas devotees sink to an existence in the hellish worlds of darkness.
