ಕರ್ಮೇಂದ್ರಿಯೈಃ ಕರ್ಮಯೋಗಮಸಕ್ತಃ ಸ ವಿಶಿಷ್ಯತೇ ॥೭॥

Gist of the sloka:
O Arjuna, one should control the senses through their mind, renouncing the results of actions, one should perform the karmas through the action organs and be elevated.
With a clear mind, one should control the senses tightly. Actions performed thereon would be karma yoga resulting in progress towards realization. The senses in this state would never diverge from the path.
One who performs karmas with his mind clear, then it is the real karma leading to realization. One who engages in such karmas is the exceptional one. They will be transparent without having a difference between inner thoughts and outside actions, they never lose control over their senses, will renounce the results of actions and will rise towards realization.
