सर्वकर्माणि मनसा संन्यस्यास्ते सुखं वशी।
नवद्वारे पुरे देही नैव कुर्वन्न कारयन्।।5.13।।
।।5.13।। सब कर्मों का मन से संन्यास करके संयमी पुरुष नवद्वार वाली शरीर रूप नगरी में सुख से रहता हुआ न कर्म करता है और न करवाता है।।
Again Lord Krishna emphasises renunciation of all actions by the mind especially the relinquishing of pride. Now begins the summation. By performing yagna or offerings of worship in propitiation to the Supreme Lord and meditation on the Brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence and other such prescribed Vedic activities merit is acquired. Since in reality the atma or soul is not independent as such all actions performed are factually non-action. Just as respect to the father and mother is the duty of the children in the same way the living entities are subservient to the Supreme Lord through the propitiation to the atma is the duty of all humans. This is given in a treatise known as Pravritti. Thus it can be understood by one who comprehends their intrinsic dependence on the Supreme Lord is that it is solely by the mind that renunciation of desire for rewards duly manifests in ones actions.
