Swamiji in this talk continues to detail how a Knower constantly acts but with no desires and all his activities are for the welfare of all. Being always anchored in the Real Identity, such noble persons motivate the society to pursue the righteous path. Here, Swamiji gives the example of how Poojya Bhoomananda Tirtha took up the social movements just to rid the society of corrupting forces.

Presenting himself as a role model before Arjuna, Sri Krishna says that though he has no duties to perform in the three worlds, he is working incessantly to keep the society on an auspicious path. Arjuna is cautioned that if noble persons don't work with love, sincerity, attention, joy and fulfillment, then the society will resort to idleness and it would decline.

Swamiji concludes by reminding us to offer all our actions in the Universal Yajna of the Lord, which is the simplest way to dissolve our individual egotism and free us from all delusional clinging.
