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।।
Lord Krishna is declaring that in all the three worlds if He by His Supreme Will were to be present in the guise of a human or demi-god or whatever He desired there would of course be no activity He would be bound to perform as He is the maintainer of all the worlds and the Supreme Lord all prescribed activities in the Vedic scriptures are for His pleasure and satisfaction solely. Yet even when he appears in His original two armed form or in any of His scriptural authorised incarnations, Lord Krishna still applies Himself in all kinds of actions for the ultimate benefit and welfare for all the worlds.
