Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 5 - Karma-Sannyasa Yoga - The Yoga of the Renunciation of Action

Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 5 - Verse 2

Bhagavan Shri Krishna replied: Both renunciation of action (sannyasa) and the performance of selfless action (karmayoga) give the highest benefit. Yet, of the two, the path of selfless action is higher than the renunciation of action.

Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 5 - Verse 4

Those who are immature and devoid of knowledge state that the path of renunciation and the path of karma-yoga are different. However, one who follows either of these paths perfectly achieves the results of both.

Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 5 - Verse 8-9

One who is a knower of the truth, although he is engaged in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving, sleeping, breathing, talking, evacuating, accepting objects and blinking the eyes, realizes that all his sense-functions are interacting with the respective sense-objects. Therefore, he thinks, “I am not doing anything.”
