भगवद् गीता अध्याय 5 श्लोक 11

कायेन मनसा बुद्ध्या केवलैरिन्द्रियैरपि।
योगिनः कर्म कुर्वन्ति सङ्गं त्यक्त्वाऽऽत्मशुद्धये।।5.11।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 5.11)

।।5.11।।कर्मयोगी आसक्तिका त्याग करके केवल (ममतारहित) इन्द्रियाँशरीरमनबुद्धिके द्वारा अन्तःकरणकी शुद्धिके लिये ही कर्म करते हैं।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

After previously stating that actions performed for the Supreme Lord as a matter of duty without desire for rewards do not bind one to samsara or the cycle of birth and death in material existence, Lord Krishna is illustrating how by bathing the body, meditating in the mind, reflecting with the intellect, hearing and narrating about the divine pastimes of the Supreme Lord and such activities are for the purification of the mind and lead to moksa or liberation from material existence.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna describes the activities of karma yoga or prescribed Vedic activities and how they should be performed to achieve purity of mind.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Completely devoid of all cravings for the rewards of ones actions and endeavours even up to desiring entry to svargaloka or the heavenly spheres. Those who have indeed become accomplished in karma yoga or prescribed Vedic activities without desiring rewards simply let their body, mind and senses perform their natural functions as instruments to effect atma-suddhi or self-purification which breaks the bonds of the past deeds which bind the atma to samsara or the cycle of birth and death. Karma yoga should be performed solely for this purpose and not for obtaining heavenly enjoyments in svargaloka.
