Then spake, again, Krishna, the Blessed Lord, unto Arjuna, the Prince of the Pandus, saying:

"Hearken unto my words, O Prince. Truly say I unto thee, that he, who performeth honorably and to the best of his ability, such Action as may appear to him to be plain and righteous Duty, remembering always that he has naught to do with the reward or fruits of the Action, is both a- Renouncer of Action, and also a Performer of the Service of Right Action. More truly is he an Ascetic and Renouncer than he who merely refuses to perform Actions; for the one hath the spirit of the doctrine, while the other hath grasped merely the empty shell of form and letter. Know thou such Intelligent Right Action as Renunciation; and also know that the best of Right Action without Intelligent understanding of the renunciation of results is not Right Action at all.
