Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:
येषां त्वन्तगतं पापं जनानां पुण्यकर्मणाम्।
ते द्वन्द्वमोहनिर्मुक्ता भजन्ते मां दृढव्रताः॥७-२८॥
yesām tvantagatam pāpam janānām punyakarmanām
te dvandvamohanirmuktā bhajante mām drdhavratāh
“But they who worship me in every way are selflessly engaged in good deeds, free from sin and delusion,
arising from the conflicts of attachment and repulsion,
and of firm intent.’’
Freed from evil and conflicting passions, the doers of virtuous action
which brings; the worldly life-of birth and death-to a final end,
and which has been variously described as worthy action,
ordained action, and the deed of yagya,
worship and adore him to achieve redemption.
Here it is evident beyond any doubt
the way to God-realization is according to Lord Krishn
only through an accomplished teacher.
One who performs the ordained task under the guidance
such a mentor acquires mastery of spiritual capacity
as well as
This is also further illustrated in the next verses.
जरामरणमोक्षाय मामाश्रित्य यतन्ति ये।
ते ब्रह्म तद्विदुः कृत्स्नमध्यात्मं कर्म चाखिलम्॥७-२९॥
jarāmaranamoksāya māmāśritya yatanti ye
te brahma tadviduh krtsnamadhyātmam karma cākhilam
“Only they who strive for liberation
from the cycle of birth and death
by finding shelter under me succeed in knowing God,
Knowledge of God, of the kinship of the individual and Universal Soul,
all action prepares a man spiritually
to take refuge
seek the ultimate liberation.
