"Man neither attain to the final state of actionlessness by desisting from work, nor does he achieve deva (divine) perfection by just renunciation of work." - Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta
Commentary by Swami Agadananda in the book, Yatharth Geeta, The Geeta in its True Perspective .
Usually, at this point, seekers on the way to God begin to look for shortcuts and escapes. We have to be on our guard against the common misconception that we become "selfless doers" just because we do not undertake any work. That is why Krishn emphasizes the point that one does not achieve the state of actionlessness by just not beginning work.
