BG Chap 13 - The result of knowing prakṛti, jīva and Paramātmā

One who knows the Paramātmā, prakṛti or māyā, along with the guṇas, and the jīva does not take birth again, regardless of his present position. One who understands these three (the Lord, prakṛti belonging to the Lord and the jīva) with differentiation among them attains liberation, though in this life he may be situated in all sorts of unfavorable circumstances such as being overcome by sleep and having uncontrolled mind or other such problems. Although he lives in the material world doing actions to support his body, he is liberated.
