Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 5

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 3 श्लोक 5

न हि कश्िचत्क्षणमपि जातु तिष्ठत्यकर्मकृत्।
कार्यते ह्यवशः कर्म सर्वः प्रकृतिजैर्गुणैः।।3.5।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 3.5)

।।3.5।।कोई भी मनुष्य किसी भी अवस्थामें क्षणमात्र भी कर्म किये बिना नहीं रह सकता क्योंकि (प्रकृतिके) परवश हुए सब प्राणियोंसे प्रकृतिजन्य गुण कर्म कराते हैं।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The renunciation of actions factually means not being attached to them. It does not mean actually giving them up, as that is impossible. Nobody neither a wise man or a fool under any circumstances can refrain from actions for a moment. The reason Lord Krishna is stating is that all are compelled to act forced by ones likes and dislikes influenced by ones attachments and aversions arising out of prakriti, material nature and designated by ones past life activities.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

That it is impossible to renounce every single action one makes is whats being clarified here Now begins the summation. Actions are spoken of as two-fold in the Paingi scripture. Actions that are dependent upon a cause and and actions which are independent of any cause. The actions that are dependent upon a cause are due to the influence of prakriti, material nature. Independent actions are only manifesting from the Supreme Lord. Therefore the words karyate he avasah means to perform activities fully dependent, this dependence is on the Supreme Lord Krishna. The scriptures also further clarify that ah means the all pervasive Brahman.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

No living being in the material existence can remain inactive even for a moment without initiating or pursuing some activity or another. If one should steadfastly determine to perform absolutely nothing, still one would be compelled into action by the qualities of the the three gunas being sattva or goodness, rajas or passion and tamas or ignorance, all from prakriti, material nature. The effects of these have sprung into existence from ones past life activities. Thus by adhering to karma yoga the yoga of actions without desires ones accumulated sins will gradually dissolve and then mastery over the gunas and prakriti is achieved. At this time the mind has become pure and one becomes qualified for jnana yoga. Otherwise as Lord Krishna states anyone attempting to pursue jnana yoga in lieu of this is a charlatan and all their attempts is merely a charade.
