“Those who are on this path are resolute in purpose, and their aim is one. The intelligence of those who are irresolute is many-branched.”BG 2.41

The resolute purpose of a person in spiritual life is based on knowledge of the soul beyond the conception of the body – not theoretically but practically, when there is no longer a chance for sense gratification manifested in fruitive activities. One who is not firmly fixed in mind is diverted by various types of fruitive acts.

Five factors of action

“The place of action [the body], the performer, the various senses, the many different kinds of endeavor, and ultimately the Supersoul—these are the five factors of action.”BG 18.14

The instruments of action are the senses, and by the senses the soul acts in various ways. For each and every action there is a different endeavor. But all one’s activities depend on the will of the Supersoul, who is seated within the heart as a friend.

So, we are responsible for our good or bad actions.
