With knowledge [of God] he casts off both good and evil deeds; therefore exert yourself for the yoga (means of knowledge), for, the yoga is the most efficacious in midst of duties.
Of merits, the Wiseguy allows perishing all that which leads to birth & death and other undesirable results, but he does not allow perishing whatever merit resulting from meditation; whereas he casts off absolutely all demerits. So Arjuna is asked to walk in the path of knowledge and spare no effort in that direction.
The Yoga, that is, duties done for the sake of Lord’s grace with the knowledge of His greatness and without longing for any fruits, is really a skill in the performance of duties, as it leads to everlasting consequence. This indeed is Yoga, for only the duty performed without motives is the means of Knowledge.
