yo na hṛṣyati na dveṣṭi na śocati na kāṅkṣati
śubhāśubhaparityāgī bhaktimān yaḥ sa me priyaḥ (XII-17)
samaḥ śatrau ca mitre ca tathā mānāpamānayoḥ
śītoṣṇasukhaduḥkheṣu samaḥ saṅgavivarjitaḥ (XII-18)
tulyanindāstutir maunī saṁtuṣṭo yena kenacit
aniketaḥ sthiramatir bhaktimān me priyo naraḥ (XII-19)
XII/17. He who neither rejoices nor hates, nor grieves, nor desires,
renouncing good and evil, and who is full of devotion,
is dear to me.
XII/18. He who is the same to foe and friend, and also in honor and
dishonor, who is the same in cold and heat and in pleasure
and pain, who is free from attachment,
XII/19/ He to whom censure and praise are equal, who is silent,
content with anything, homeless, of a steady mind,
and full of devotion – that man is dear to me.
