Bhagavadgeeta Verse 5.3

ज्ञॆयः सः नित्य-संन्यासी यः न द्वॆष्टि न काङ्क्षति ।
निर्द्वन्द्वः हि महाबाहॊ सुखं बन्धात् प्रमुच्यतॆ ॥ ५.३ ॥

ಜ್ಞೇಯಃ ಸಃ ನಿತ್ಯ-ಸಂನ್ಯಾಸೀ ಯಃ ನ ದ್ವೇಷ್ಟಿ ನ ಕಾಂಕ್ಷತಿ |
ನಿರ್ದ್ವಂದ್ವಃ ಹಿ ಮಹಾಬಾಹೋ ಸುಖಂ ಬಂಧಾತ್ ಪ್ರಮುಚ್ಯತೇ || ೫.೩ ||

j~jEyaH saH nitya-saMnyAsee yaH na dvEShTi na kA~gkShati |
nirdvandvaH hi mahAbAhO sukhaM bandhAt pramuchyatE || 5.3 ||

He is to be understood to be always a sanyasin who neither hates nor loves; O the mighty-armed, indeed he who is free from the pairs of opposites is easily released from bondage.

Sanyasa in this context is eschewing of passions and not the particular way of life (ashrama) called sanyasa. Hence Arjuna is instructed not to abandon his duty of war.
