Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 Verse 14

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 4 श्लोक 14

न मां कर्माणि लिम्पन्ति न मे कर्मफले स्पृहा।
इति मां योऽभिजानाति कर्मभिर्न स बध्यते।।4.14।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

4.14. Actions do not stain Me; nor do I have a desire for the fruits [of actions] also. Whosoever comprehends Me as such, he is not bound by actions.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

4.13-14 Catur-varnyam etc. Na mam etc. How can there be taint of actions in Me Who remain like the ether ? The comparison with ether is due to the absence of desire [in both]. As such etc. : whosoever, with this sort of thought, takes refuge in the Bhagavat i.e. contemplates everywhere at all times on the Bliss-dense Supreme Lord as There exits nothing othe than Vasudeva [the Absolute] - for him can there be any bondage by actions ?
