Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
Link:-The Lord now enumerates these five factors.
The originat base of action (body), the doer (agent), the instruments of various sorts (senses), many kinds of efforts and Daiva, impression being the fifth. 14
- All the actions are performed by Prakrti, it has been described in the Gita in several ways (t) All actions are performed by the modes of nature (3/27; 1329). (2) The modes are acting on the modes (3/28) and when the seer perceives no agent other than the modes (14/19). (3) The senses act on sense-objects (5/9). (4) Here in 78/14 five factors are contributory to the accomplishment of actions. All these statements mean that actions are performed by nature only and not by the self, but a man by identifying himself with nature assumes that he is a doer (3/27). But a wise man realizes that all actions are performed by nature, to he does nothing at all (5/8).
