Bhagavad Gita on how to attain highest perfection

By following one’s duty, human being can attain highest perfection. 
How does man acquire this perfection by following one’s duty, listen from me (says Lord Krishna)! The divine power from which this entire universe has originated and of which the whole universe is pervaded, by worshipping that God through performance of one’s duty, man can attain perfection.
Bhagavad Gita (Source: Bhagavad Gita – Chapter 18, Verse 45-46)
