कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन। मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मातेसङगोस्त्वकर्मणि
Srimadbhagvadgita(chapter 2, 47th shloka)
Meaning:- The only right you have is to work without having the intention of a fruit(consequence). Neither be instrumental in making your actions bear fruit, nor let your attachment be to inaction.
Explanation:- This is one of the best shloks of Bhagvadgita teaching us the secret of success in any task.
When Arjun is unable to make a choice whether he ought to fight against his relatives, Bhagwan srikrishna teaches him ‘sankhya Yog’ (Yog of true knowledge).
In this particular shlok Lord krishna is preeching Arjun that one should do one’s duties after renouncing attachment to success and failure even without expecting any fruit because that is decided by the almighty god.
When we do so it is called ‘nishkaam karma’ which gives us immense pleasure and definite success. We have been granted only karma to do until alive in this world. The result of our deeds is evaluated and decided by the supreme power.
This is the big teaching of the above shlok.
