आत्मवन्तं न कर्माणि निबध्नन्ति धनञ्जय।।4.41।।
।।4.41।।हे धनञ्जय योग(समता) के द्वारा जिसका सम्पूर्ण कर्मोंसे सम्बन्धविच्छेद हो गया है और ज्ञानके द्वारा जिसके सम्पूर्ण संशयोंका नाश हो गया है ऐसे स्वरूपपरायण मनुष्यको कर्म नहीं बाँधते।
Lord Krishna explains that the performance of karma yoga or prescribed Vedic activities is the mode of action in the ways He indicated above. Dedication and renunciation means that actions are performed in jnana yoga or the cultivation of Vedic knowledge. When performed in this way the binding power of actions becomes neutralised. Also by this method any doubts concerning the atma or soul are dispelled by knowledge of the atma. The compound word atma-vantam means one who is self-satisfied. One whose mind is unassailable and unapproachable by any type of doubt. Such a person has achieved an unshakeable certitude about the reality and eternality of the soul from the teachings received from the spiritual master. No actions performed for oneself or for others in the present or the future can ever bind such a person.
