Resting in yog, renouncing infatuation for worldly ties,
looking at success and failure with an equal mind,
a seeker should undertake action.
But what action?
Seeker should do selfless action. Equipoise of mind is what is called yog.
The mind in which there is no unevenness is full of equanimity.
Greed destroys its evenness, attachments make it unequal,
desire for the fruits of action destroy its serenity.
That is why there should be no hankering after the fruits of action.
At the same time, however, there should also be no diminishing of faith
the performance of ordained action i.e worshiping of single God only.
Renouncing attachment to all things, seen as well as unseen,
giving up all concern about achievement and non-achievement,
we should only keep our eyes fixed on yog,
the discipline that joins the individual Soul with the Supreme Spirit,
lead a life of strenuous action.
Equanimity of mind is also named yog.
When the mind cannot be shaken by failure and success,
nothing can destroy its evenness,
it is said to be in the state of yog.
It cannot then be moved by passion.
Such a state of mind enables the Soul to identify himself with God.
