  1. Chapter 3 KarmaYoga WHICH IS BETTER? RENUNCIATION OR WORK? (3.1‑9) FIGHT! DO YOUR DUTY BUT WITHOUT ATTACHMENT (3.3‑9) FROM KARMA‑KANDA TO KARMA‑YOGA ( 3.10‑16) NISKAMA KARMA- do your duty with out attachment to set the proper example, and elevate yourself (3.17‑35) BEWARE OF LUST AND ANGER. 36-42

  2. Arjuna’s question: 3:1-2 Janardana, O Kesava, why do You want to engage me in this ghastly warfare, if You think that intelligence is better than fruitive work? In text 2:49 You said, “Keep all abominable activities far distant.” And war is certainly an abominable activity My intelligence is bewildered by Your equivocal instruction.

  3. Which is better Please tell me one truth !!

  4. NEITHER!! Not by merely abstaining from work can one achieve freedom from reaction, nor by renunciation alone can one attain perfection. Vs 4 You will be forced to act helplessly according to the qualities you have acquired from the modes of material nature! Vs 5

  5. Otherwise renunciation without purification leads to fall down one will be a pretender and fall down! Vs. 3-8

  6. Don’t be a pretender!

  7. Knowledge ( you’re not this body = Jnana) + detachment = Nis kama karma Yoga! Verses 8-9 To reach the Ultimate level one must offer everything to Visnu! This changes Buddhi Yoga to Bhakti Yoga. Work for the Supreme

  8. Vs. 10-12

  9. Verse 3:11 purport

  10. Vs. 3:14-16 All embodied living entities have complete dependence on the Lord because they Depend on food grains Which come from the Supreme Lord Which depend on rains Which depend on performance of Yajna (sacrifice) Which are born of duties prescribed in the Vedas

  11. Considering this thepurpose of human life is to please the Supreme Lord The best sacrifice to please Him is unalloyed and undeviated devotional service. The best sacrifice for this age is sankirtan yajna, chanting and distributing the Holy Name-- Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Hare Hare

  12. Verse 17 Sri Krsna says: But for one who takes pleasure in the self, whose human life is one of self-realization, and who is satisfied in the self only, fully satiated—for him there is no duty!

  13. And Arjuna thinks:That’s what I said before! If one who is conscious of YOU has no duty to perform.andif one is totally detached from the fruits of his work, then why do anything, especially fight?Better to just meditate and study sastra!

  14. Vs. 19-30 Sri Krsna’s response: Act out of duty: To set an example for others because whatever great men do common men follow! You should follow the example of others like 1. Janaka Maharaja 2. Myself Also act to purify yourself!

  15. From Niskama Yoga you can be elevated to Bhakti vs 30-1 Therefore, O Arjuna, surrendering all your works unto Me, with full knowledge of Me, without desires for profit, and no claims to proprietorship, and free from lethargy, fight! Those persons who execute their duties according to MY injunctions and who follow this teaching Faithfully without envy, become free from the bondage of fruitive actions.

  16. What good is repression? Do not come under the control of attachment and aversion. Control your senses by the Vedic principles because they regulate attachment and aversion Better to do your duty than another’s.

  17. Meet Mr. Lust Vs 36: By what is one impelled to sinful acts, even unwillingly, as if engaged by force? Vs 37: It is lust only, Arjuna, which is born of contact with the material mode of passion and later transformed into wrath, and which is the all-devouring sinful enemy of this world.

  18. Lust Mind Intelligence Senses

  19. Verse 38
