2.47 As for you, Arjuna, act on what is necessary and never become attached to the fruit of your actions; in the same manner, never become attached to non-action.
Most wise. Never rest on your past laurels and never permit non-action to prevent you from doing further spiritual good.
2.48 Yoga assures equanimity of Mind. Arjuna, just remain centered in that equanimity. Un-equanimity will only assure a restless mind and spirit—becoming attached to either success or failure.
Do your spiritual work with no-strings attached—forget the fringe benefits, too—just Be-Centered in the Unborn and all will unfold as it should.
2.49 Don’t get absorbed in your work; rather be-absorbed in your yogic-discipline and you will have won skillful action.
The yogin does not work as if his life depended on it; rather his disciplined spirit works solely for the benefit of the Unborn and no-thing else.
2.50 Discard unevenness of Mind and go-beyond good and evil. Develop your yogic-skills and be the master over all dichotomies.
Yoga is the equilibrium point over the abyss of all dualities.
2.51 Enjoying Mind’s equanimity the yogin is free to renounce the fruit of their labors; in so doing one knows release from the awful pangs of karma.
Karma releases the one who is not obsessed with past actions.
2.52 Right discernment frees the bewildered mind; one is then empowered to cross the ocean of uncertainty with no more concern over matters of birth or death.
Right discernment is the compass of certainty.
2.53 Remaining steady and unperplexed with the passing rhythm of time-bound reality, the Yogin knows the satisfaction of a disciplined spirit.
Indeed, No-thing at all bothers the Yogin whose spirit is in complete equipoise with the Unborn.
