योगयुक्तो विशुद्धात्मा विजितात्मा जितेन्द्रियः ।
सर्वभूतात्मभूतात्मा कुर्वन्नपि न लिप्यते ॥
kurvann api na lipyate
yoga-yuktaḥ—engaged in devotional service; viśuddha-ātmā—a purified soul; vijita-ātmā—self-controlled; jita-indriyaḥ—having conquered the senses; sarvabhuta-ātmabhūta-ātmā—compassionate to all living entities; kurvan api—although engaged in work; na—never; lipyate—is entangled.

इन्द्रियाणीन्द्रियार्थेषु वर्तन्त इति धारयन् ॥
naiva kincit karomiti

A person in the divine consciousness, although engaged in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, moving about, sleeping, and breathing, always knows within himself that he actually does nothing at all. Because while speaking, evacuating, receiving, opening or closing his eyes, he always knows that only the material senses are engaged with their objects and that he is aloof from them.
