Chapter 5

Communion through Renunciation

arjuna uvaca
sannyasam karmanam krsna
punar yogam ca samsasi
yac chreya etayor ekam
tan me bruhi suniscitam [5-1]

Arjuna said: O Krsna, first of all You ask me to renounce work, and then again You recommend work with devotion. Now will You kindly tell me definitely which of the two is more beneficial? [5-1]

sannyasas tu maha-baho
duhkham aptum ayogatah
