    akarmani ca karma yah

    SYNONYMS
    karmani--in action; akarma--inaction; yah--one who; pasyet--observes; akarmani--in inaction; ca--also; karma--fruitive action; yah--one who; sah--he; buddhi-man--is intelligent; manusyesu--in human society; sah--he; yuktah--in the transcendental position; krtsna-karma-krt--although engaged in all activities.

    TRANSLATION
    One who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction, is intelligent among men, and he is in the transcendental position, although engaged in all sorts of activities.
    PURPORT

    A person acting in Krsna consciousness is naturally free from the bonds of karma. His activities are all performed for Krsna; therefore he does not enjoy or suffer any of the effects of work. Consequently he is intelligent in human society, even though he is engaged in all sorts of activities for Krsna. Akarma means without reaction to work. The impersonalist ceases fruitive activities out of fear, so that the resultant action may not be a stumbling block on the path of self-realization, but the personalist knows rightly his position as the eternal servitor of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Therefore he engages himself in the activities of Krsna consciousness. Because everything is done for Krsna, he enjoys only transcendental happiness in the discharge of this service. Those who are engaged in this process are known to be without desire for personal sense gratification. The sense of eternal servitorship to Krsna makes one immune to all sorts of reactionary elements of work.

    If you speculate then you will come up with almost anything.

    dasa means servant.

    Unless you understand Sanskrit you will always confuse meanings.

    he is quiet right you know. you chose to represent your name in english with the transliteration that means slave/impious/demonic, while 'servant' is pronounced dAza.

    and please refrain from the ignoramous comment about knowning sanskrit. anybody can look it up.

    I call him the Serpent, is that any closer to the truth?

    All this is no surprise to me.
