Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 28

But, O mighty-armed, the one intuitive into the nature of Guna and Karma knows that Gunas as senses merely abide with Gunas as objects, and does not become entangled. (Bhagavad Gita Chapter 3 Verse 28)

Every action is really performed by the Gunas, but man deluded by his egoism thinks: “I am the doer.” And so the unwise gets entangled in their acts.

But the wise learn to see that the Atman, the true Self, is but the detached witness, serene and impartial. Actions cannot blind the Atman, as weapons do not pierce the Atman.

In this knowledge, the wise man offers his actions to Krishna and takes his part in the great battle against suffering and sin, against the evil of his own lower nature. (The Bhagavad Gita – The Song of Life - Sadhu Vaswani)
