Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 23

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 3 श्लोक 23

यदि ह्यहं न वर्तेयं जातु कर्मण्यतन्द्रितः।
मम वर्त्मानुवर्तन्ते मनुष्याः पार्थ सर्वशः।।3.23।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 3.23)

।।3.23 3.24।।हे पार्थ अगर मैं किसी समय सावधान होकर कर्तव्यकर्म न करूँ (तो बड़ी हानि हो जाय क्योंकि) मनुष्य सब प्रकारसे मेरे ही मार्गका अनुसरण करते हैं। यदि मैं कर्म न करूँ तो ये सब मनुष्य नष्टभ्रष्ट हो जायँ और मैं संकरताको करनेवाला तथा इस समस्त प्रजाको नष्ट करनेवाला बनूँ।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

This verse continues the theme of the previous verse that if Lord Krishna did not perform prescribed Vedic actions with vigilance and attention when the need arose then lesser great personalities would follow His example and it would bring ruin to the world.

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna appeared as the son of King Vasudeva from the Vrishni dynasty, the foremost of the righteous. If Lord Krishna was to fail to perform prescribed Vedic activities then so many lesser personalities would follow in His footsteps thinking that is the standard. Lord Krishna is stating that He would be at fault for leading them falsely in the wrong way.
