karmanye vadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachana


कर्मणयेवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि।   2.47

English translation of lines :“You have a right to perform your prescribed action,but you are not entitled to the fruits of your action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results your activities,and never be associated to not doing your duty.”

Its forty seventh verse in second chapter of Bhagawad Gita. This verse explains the importance of disinterested work in the life. As per this verse, individual should work towards his goals, but he must not desire the outcome for the work.

Whatever we do singing, writing, teaching, leading or any other type of work; we are most prone to expect the compensation or outcome of the efforts we take.  Here we deflect from the principle of disinterestedness. Producing the outcome and results is in the hands of God.

Whatever you are doing, you are working for the god. So, your work will be considered as an act of goodwill. He will offer you the eternal peace for your work.

Giordano Bruno says, “I have fought, that is much, victory is in the hands of fate.”
