BG Chap 18 - Inaction will not lead to jñana

Actions cannot be given up at any time by a person who is embodied. The Lord confirmed this already in BG 3.5, when He said that not for a moment can a person remain without doing action. But he who renounces the fruits of actions is actually a tyāgī. One should perform all actions to the best of his ability, devoid of the conception of being the doer and devoid of desire for results, in order to attain jñana. Therefore he who works for Kṛṣṇa and does not enjoy the fruitive results, who offers everything to Kṛṣṇa, is actually a renouncer.
