karma brahmodbhavaṁ viddhi brahmākṣhara-samudbhavam
tasmāt sarva-gataṁ brahma nityaṁ yajñe pratiṣhṭhitam|| 3.15||

Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 3- Ver. 15:

The Vedas contain descriptions of human responsibilities, and the Vedas themselves are manifestations of God. As a result, in acts of sacrifice, the all-pervading Lord is eternally present.

Explanation

Yajna is a necessary part of life It is the lifeblood. Devolve into egoism, and tragedy and ruin will follow. This is true of a person, a culture, or a country. Yajna brings the far-flung Brahman within your grasp. Brahman, which was once a hazy concept, becomes a tangible goal for you. Yajna brings about integration, oneness, and harmony inside you, as well as with other humans, animals, and the environment.

Because it is derived from the Vedas, yajna is an essential aspect of the everlasting essence. Yajna becomes a fundamental law inherent in the world since the Vedas symbolise the “rule-book” of the universe. Because the everlasting essence created the rules of the cosmos, karmayoga is a method, a technique, for realising the eternal essence.

The duties of people have been handed down by God himself in these timeless Vedas. These responsibilities have been designed in such a way that materially interested people might gradually learn to control their desires and go from the mode of ignorance to the mode of passion, and from the mode of passion to the mode of virtue, by doing them. These responsibilities are to be dedicated to him as yaja. As a result, responsibilities devoted as a sacrifice to God become holy, of God’s character, and indistinguishable from him.
