Bhagavadgeeta Verse 3.28
तत्ववित् तु महाबाहुः गुणकर्मविभागॊः ।
गुणः गुणॆषु वर्तन्त इति मत्वा न सज्जतॆ ॥ ३.२८ ॥
ತತ್ವವಿತ್ ತು ಮಹಾಬಾಹುಃ ಗುಣಕರ್ಮವಿಭಾಗೋಃ |
ಗುಣಃ ಗುಣೇಷು ವರ್ತಂತ ಇತಿ ಮತ್ವಾ ನ ಸಜ್ಜತೇ || ೩.೨೮ ||
tatvavit tu mahAbAhuH guNakarmavibhAgOH |
guNaH guNEShu vartaMta iti matvA na sajjatE || 3.28 ||
Whereas, O the mighty-armed, a wise man who conclusively understands that the jeeva is in no way the absolute agent, but always depends upon the Lord and other forces directed by Him, therefore forms no attachment. i.e., he does not falsely attribute to himself the authorship of any activity and does not thereby plunge himself in samsara.
