The discipline of action means action without attachment

 

 

Man does not attain freedom from action without entering upon action; nor does he reach perfection merely by ceasing to act. Surely none can ever remain inactive even for a moment; for every one is helplessly driven to action by nature-born qualities. He who outwardly restraining the organs of sense and action, sits mentally dwelling on the objects of senses, that man of deluded intellect, is called a hypocrite. On the other hand, he excels who controlling the organs of sense and action by the power of his will, and remaining unattached, undertakes the discipline of action through those organs. Therefore, every person should perform his duty; for action is superior to inaction. Desisting from action a man cannot even maintain his body. It is through action without attachment alone that Janak and other wise men reached perfection. Having an eye to maintenance of the world order too one should take to action. For whatever a great man does, that very thing other men also do; whatever standard he sets up, the generality of men follow the same. A wise man established in the Self should not unsettle the mind of the ignorant attached to action, but should get them to perform all their duties, duly performing his own duties. All actions are being performed by the modes of nature. The fool whose mind is deluded by egoism thinks that he is the doer. All living creatures follow their tendencies; even the wise man acts according to the tendencies of his nature.
