Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 14

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 3 श्लोक 14

अन्नाद्भवन्ति भूतानि पर्जन्यादन्नसम्भवः।
यज्ञाद्भवति पर्जन्यो यज्ञः कर्मसमुद्भवः।।3.14।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 3.14)

।।3.14 3.15।।सम्पूर्ण प्राणी अन्नसे उत्पन्न होते हैं। अन्न वर्षासे होता है। वर्षा यज्ञसे होती है। यज्ञ कर्मोंसे निष्पन्न होता है। कर्मोंको तू वेदसे उत्पन्न जान और वेदको अक्षरब्रह्मसे प्रकट हुआ जान। इसलिये वह सर्वव्यापी परमात्मा यज्ञ (कर्तव्यकर्म) में नित्य प्रतिष्ठित है।

English Translation of Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Shankaracharya's

3.14 It is a matter of direct perception that annat, from food, which is eaten and is transformed into blood and semen; bhavanti, are born; bhutani, the creatures. Anna-sambhavah, the origin of food; is parjanyat, from rainfall. Parjanyah, rainfall; bhavati, originates; from yajnat, from sacrifice. This accords with the Smrti, The oblations properly poured into fire reaches the sun. From the sun comes rain, from rain comes food, and from the sun comes rain, from rain comes food, and from that the creatures (Ma.Sm.3.76). (Here) sacrifice means its unie [Also termed as the unseen result (adrsta).-Tr.] result. And that sacrifice, i.e. the unie result, which arises (samudbhavah) from action (karma) undertaken by the priest and the sacrificer, is karma-samudbhavah; it has action for its origin.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

3.14 From food arise all beings; from rain food is produced. These two facts are matters of common experience. From sacrifice comes rain this is known from the scriptures such as, The oblations offered in fire reach the sun, and from the sun comes rain (Manu, 6.76), and sacrifice is born out of activities in the form of collecting materials, etc., by the agent. And activity arises from Brahman, the body born of Prakrti.
