Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
A self-realized man has no purpose to fulﬁll in the discharge of his prescribed duties, nor has he any reason not to perform such work. Nor has he any need to depend on any other living being.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
A self-realized man is no longer obliged to perform any prescribed duty, save and except activities in Krishna consciousness. Krishna consciousness is not inactivity either, as will be explained in the following verses. A Krishna conscious man does not take shelter of any person – man or demigod. Whatever he does in Krishna consciousness is sufﬁcient in the discharge of his obligation.
