karma caiva tadarthīyaṅ sadityēvābhidhīyatē৷৷17.27৷৷

English Translation By Swami Adidevananda

17.27 Devotion to sacrifice, austerities and gifts is also called Sat; and so any act for such purposes is named Sat.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Adidevananda

17.27 Therefore, devotion of persons of the first three stations who follow the Vedas in respect of sacrifices, austerities and gifts is called Sat, since it is auspicious. So the Vedas, Vedic acts and the three stations, expressed by the term 'brahmana,' since they are characterised by their connection with the words 'Om Tat Sat,' are to be distinguished from what are not the Vedas and Vedic.
