aśraddhayā hutaṅ dattaṅ tapastaptaṅ kṛtaṅ ca yat.

asadityucyatē pārtha na ca tatprētya nō iha৷৷17.28৷৷

English Translation By Swami Adidevananda

17.28 Whatever offering or gift is made, whatever austerity is practised and whatever action is performed without faith, that is called Asat, O Arjuna. It is naught here or hereafter.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Adidevananda

17.28 Offerings etc., when performed without faith, are Asat (i.e., unreal, bereft of efficiency), although they might be what has been enjoined by the Sastras. Why so? Because it is naught here or hereafter; it will not lead to release nor to any desirable result in Samsara.
