Karma Samnyasa Yoga
Jnana Karma Samnyasa Yoga
Whenever there is decay of righteousness, O Bharata, and a rise of unrighteousness, then I manifest myself.
The wicked, the fools and the lowest of men take not refuge in me; they take refuge in Devilish Nature being bereft of knowledge by illusion.
Many births of mine have passed and mine too, O Arjuna! I know all of them though knowst not.
For the protection of the good, for the destruction of the wicked and for the establishment of righteousness, I am born in every age.
