kecit kurvanti karmāṇi
tyajantaḥ prakṛtīr daivīr
kecit — some people; kurvanti — execute; karmāṇi — worldly duties; kāmaiḥ — by desires; ahata — undisturbed; cetasaḥ — whose minds; tyayantaḥ — giving up; prakṛtīḥ — propensities; daivīḥ — created by the Supreme Lord's material energy; yathā — as; aham — I; loka-sańgraham — to instruct the people in general.
Having renounced all material propensities, which spring from the Lord's illusory energy, some people execute worldly duties with their minds undisturbed by mundane desires. They act as I do, to instruct the general populace.
