Here Devas means that which shines or illuminating.In this context it means the sense organs.If a person nourishes his sense organs well, it benefits him by helping him by doing their duties perfectly.Say you go on dieting for a few days and the eyes start seeing poorly.So nourish the organs perfectly and use them judiciously, then they will also nourish you.If any sense organ is overused, it may deteriorate and thus suffering may arise.

This judicious use of sense organs with discrimination takes one to achieve the real Devahood or Godhood.

One who performs all actions with a bhavana or attitude of sacriice doesnot have dearth of anything.The law of nature or cosmos is such that you walk one step towards God and he will walk ten steps towards you.The nature nourishes what it has created.We do not know which organ does what and how it functions, yet everything works perfectly with synchronization.So Krishna here says that a man who works with an attitude of Yajna or sacrifice will have all his wishes fulfilled (Like Kamadhenu which is a mythological cow which can fulfill all the desires of a person) because nature or God comes to his aid.Look at all the prosperous countries, their citizens loved their country and dedicated their efforts to build it without selfishness.

All Karmas create bondage unless they are performed with an attitude of Yajna.Yajna here does not mean lighting a fire and offering Ahutis.It means any work done with the desire of result being sacrificed at an higher altar.Yajna also means Vishnu, sacrifice, team work carried on without ego etc.When the Karma or work is performed with a desire in mind, then if the desires are fulfilled it gives rise to greed and impels a person to repeat it again and again.If an obstruction comes in the way of fulfilling that desire it leads to anger.If one gets more than the other it makes him proud and if one gets less than the other then it makes him jealous and frustrated.

To give up selfishness, one should start performing action with an attitude of sacrifice.He should offer his work for the betterment of his family, then his society, then when he progresses further – towards community, state, nation world and then God.This is a step by step evolution.Krishna says play your part perfectly.Be a good and ethical professional /businessman/teacher / doctor etc at work, be a loving father, an obedient son/daughter,a devoted student, a devoted husband /wife, a law abiding citizen and above all a helping person.Slowly this person will achieve highest spirituality through work as he won’t be attached to it’s results and will be free from bondage.

Here Lord Krishna is saying that a person has to do the “Niyata Karmas” or obligatory duties like sleeping, eating, keeping the body clean etc.Here performing obligatory work does not benefit in any punya or merit, but not performing these duties lead to demerit and deterioration of the body.One has to eat food to keep the body healthy, others can’t do it for you.Similarly one has got obligatory duties towards family, society, country and the world..It is an obligation and duty to love one’s country which nurtures us, protects us from invaders, allows us to use the resources judiciously.But not loving oneself, one’s family, one’s society, one’s country is a sin.He says not doing one’s obligatory duty will lead to imbalance and to the survival of the body itself.

Here Krishna is not not asking one to be body-centric.The body has to be kept in good health as body is the vehicle through which one has to do austerity, love God and then ultimately realise him.
