Chapter 18 -- Verse 8
Verse: duḥkhamityeva yatkarma kāyakleśabhayāttyajet | sa kṛtvā rājasaṃ tyāgaṃ naiva tyāgaphalaṃ labhet ||

दुःखमित्येव यत्कर्म कायक्लेशभयात्त्यजेत् ।

 स कृत्वा राजसं त्यागं नैव त्यागफलं लभेत् ॥

Translation: He who, from fear of bodily trouble, abandons action because it is painful, thus performing a RAJASIC (passionate) abandonment, obtains not the fruit of "abandonment."
