Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 5 Text 12
yuktah karma-phalam tyaktva
santim apnoti naisthikim
phale sakto nibadhyate
yuktah--one who is engaged in devotional service; karma-phalam--the results of all activities; tyaktva--giving up; santimn--perfect peace; apnoti--achieves; naisthikim--unflinching; ayuktah--one who is not in Krsna consciousness; kama-karena--for enjoying the result of work; phale--in the result; saktah--attached; nibadhyate--becomes entangled.
The steadily devoted soul attains unadulterated peace because he offers the result of all activities to Me; whereas a person who is not in union with the Divine, who is greedy for the fruits of his labor, becomes entangled.
Srila Prabhupada ends his purport with this statemnt; This is the secret of Krsna consciousness--realization that there is no existence besides Krsna is the platform of peace and fearlessness.
On this, the twelfth anniversary of the attack by terrorist on the World Trade Centers in New York (where Srila Prabhupada started his work), I invite all my readers to turn to the Audio Offerings page of this blog and listen to Sri Satsvarupa's das Goswami's talk on how we should respond to terrorism.
