Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 22

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 3 श्लोक 22

न मे पार्थास्ति कर्तव्यं त्रिषु लोकेषु किञ्चन।
नानवाप्तमवाप्तव्यं वर्त एव च कर्मणि।।3.22।।

।।3.22।। यद्यपि मुझे त्रैलोक्य में कुछ भी कर्तव्य नहीं हैं तथा किंचित भी प्राप्त होने योग्य (अवाप्तव्यम्) वस्तु अप्राप्त नहीं है तो भी मैं कर्म में ही बर्तता हूँ।।

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Now Lord Krishna is clarifying His position by stating that there is no performance of any prescribed Vedic action required of Him; yet and still He performs actions for the benefit of the world. So in the same way Arjuna should perform prescribed actions for maintaining world order and offering the results of the actions to the Supreme Lord. This has been revealed in the Krishna Samhita. By sustenance, by maintenance and by destruction the Supreme Lord has nothing to gain. Without any objective whatsoever the Supreme Lord Krishna according to His creative impulse performs all actions perpetually throughout all of creation. Just as a person who is extremely happy may spontaneously sing and dance to express their special pleasure in the same way the Supreme Lord performs all actions to express His consciousness which is perpetually in a state of Supreme Bliss.
