Chapter 3 Verse 18

Na, ev, tasya, krten, arthH, na, akrten, ih, kashchan,
Na, ch, asya, sarvbhooteshu, kashchit, arthvypashryaH ||18||

Translation: (Tasya) that greatman’s (ih) in this world (na) neither (krten) in the performance of action (kashchan) any (arthH) there is interest and (na) nor (akrten) in non-performance of actions (ev) only, is there any interest (ch) and (sarvbhooteshu) in all living beings also (asya) his (kashchit) even a little (arthvypashryaH) relation of self-interest (na) there is no. (18)

Translation

In this world, neither that great man has any interest in the performance of action, nor only has any interest in the non-performance of actions, and also he does not even have a little interest in all the living beings. Because he, being free from self-interest, does not make anyone do worship which is not in accordance with the scriptures, nor himself does it. Neither does he do sadhna with the aim of making money, nor makes others do it.


न, एव, तस्य, कृृतेन, अर्थः, न, अकृृतेन, इह, कश्चन,
न, च, अस्य, सर्वभूतेषु, कश्चित्, अर्थव्यपाश्रयः।।18।।

अनुवाद: (तस्य) उस महापुरुषका (इह) इस विश्वमें (न) न तो (कृतेन) कर्म करनेसे (कश्चन) कोई (अर्थः) प्रयोजन रहता है और (न) न (अकृतेन) कर्मोंके न करनेसे (एव) ही कोई प्रयोजन रहता है (च) तथा (सर्वभूतेषु) सम्पूर्ण प्राणियोंमें भी (अस्य) इसका (कश्चित्) किंचितमात्रा भी (अर्थव्यपाश्रयः) स्वार्थका सम्बन्ध (न) नहीं रहता। क्योंकि वह स्वार्थ रहित होने से किसी को शास्त्रा विधि रहित भक्ति कर्म नहीं करवाता, न ही स्वयं करता है। वह धन उपार्जन के उद्देश्य से साधना नहीं करता या करवाता। (18)
