Karmanye Vadhikaraste

Karmanye Vadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachana

Karmanye vadhikaraste is the starting line and most popular in Bhagavad Gita’s chapter-2 verse-47. Bhagavad Gita is not just a book with loads of text but provides solutions and guidance to human’s life problems and equips you in improving horizon of knowledge and build a courage to live in any part of the world with confidence. It is experienced by many followers of the Bhagavad Gita readers that if you read and understand one sloka of the Bhagavad Gita per day then you will be away from all the sadness and get enlightened.

Karmanye Vadhikaraste

As the saying goes “No Pain No Gain”, which means when you are expecting some gains from an activity then definitely you must put 100 percent efforts on it to achieve gains from it. In contrast, the below sloka or verse goes like this:

Karmanye Vadhikaraste sloka

“Karmanye vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana,Ma Karma Phala Hetur Bhur Ma Te Sango Stv Akarmani”

Some people write Karmanye vadhikaraste as one word Karmanyevadhikaraste, both are accepted. The latter is used because it is appeared like that in the original sloka. But for an easy understanding of the reader I am emphasizing with two words.

The above sloka or verse means:

You have every right to work but not expecting the fruits out of it.Let the focus be not on the fruits and never be inactive.

The line actually is a combination of Karmaya+eva+adhikara+te
