shri bhagavan uvaca –
sannyasah karma-yogash ca nihshreyasa karav-ubhau
tayos tu karma-sannyasat karma-yogo vishishyate
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.
