Mokshasanyas Yoga :- SHLOK 02
2. Sages understand samnyasa to be the renouncement of interested works ; the abandonment of the fruits of all works, the learned declare, is tyaga A few sages understand by samnyasat the abandonment of kamyakarmani, of works (such as the Asvamedha, Horse sacrifice) accompanied with a desire for fruits. The learned declare that tyaga means abandonment of the fruits of all the works that are performed,natya and naimittika, ordinary and extraordinary duties; i.e of the fruits that may accrue to the performer.The abandonment of interested works and the abandonment of fruits (of works) being intended to be expressed (by the two words) the meaning of the words samnyasa and tyaga is in any way one and the same so far as the general idea is concerned, namely, abandonment, They are not quite so distinct in meaning as the words jar and clothe.(Objection):The nitya and naimittika works ordinary and extraordinary duties, are said to produce no fruits. How is it that the abandoning of their fruits is here spoken of ? It is like speaking of the abandoning of a barren, woman s son.(answer):No such objection may be raised here, since, in the opinion of the Lord, ordinary and occasional duties produce their own fruits, as He will show in xviii.12, where, indeed, while teaching that samnyasins alone (those alone who have renounced all desire for the fruits of works) have no connection whatever with those fruits, the Lord teaches also that those who are not samnyasins will have to reap the fruits of the ordinary works which they are bound to perform. Should the ignorant perform work or not?

2. Sri Bhagawan stated: " Oh Arjuna, giving up the fruits " of all Karmas is called Tyaga. For both words Sanyasa and Tyaga, there is the same meaning of `giving up.
