Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 18 Text 13
karanani nibodha me
sankhye krtante proktani
panca--five; etani--these; maha-baho--O mighty-armed one; karanani--causes; nibodha- just understand; me--from Me; sankhye--in the Vedanta; krta-ante--in the conclusion; proktani--said; siddhaye--for the perfection; sarva--of all; karmanam--activities.
O mighty-armed Arjuna, according to the Vedanta there are five causes for the accomplishment of all action. Now learn of these from Me.
Srila Prabhupada opens his purport thus; A question may be raised that since any activity performed must have some reaction, how is it that the person in Krsna consciousness does not suffer or enjoy the reactions of work? The Lord is citing Vedanta philosophy to show how this is possible.
