(Very important slokam)
Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-5 ( Karma-sanyasa-yogam ).
Brapmnyadhaya karmani samgam tyktva karoti yaha,
Lipyate na sa papena padmapatramivambasa.
yaha = who,
karoti = acts,
adhaya = by dedicating, by surrendering;
karmani = (all ) actions,
brahmani = to Brahmam, To God; with the idea, 'I am working for Him, as a servant does everything for his master',
tyaktva = (and ) by renouncing,
samgam = attachment, even with regard to,
teh = resulting Liberation;
sa = he,
na lipyate = does not get polluted, is not affected;
papena = by sin;
iva = just as;
padma-patram = a lotus leaf; is not affected by water. ( water drops never wet the leaf)
He who dedicates all his works to the spiritual forsaking of his attachments is never affected by sin like a lotus leaf is in the water.
One who acts by dedicating actions to Brahman and by renouncing attachment, he does not become polluted by sin, just as a lotus leaf is not by water. The only result that will certainly accrue from such action will be the purification of the heart.
If you act after you have offered your actions to Me you will not be affected by agitation, just as a lotus leaf is untouched by water.
Like a lotus leaf in the water he, who resigns all his activities to the spiritual in forsaking his attachments, proceeding thus, is never affected by any misfortune and trouble.
One who performs his duty without attachment, surrendering the results unto the Supreme God, is not affected by sinful action, as the lotus leaf is untouched by water.
