  • A Person who does not disturb the world and who can not be disturbed by the world, who is free from exultation, jealously, apprehension and worry, he too is dear to Me-Bhagavad Gita 12:15
  • He who feels neither rejoicing, nor loathing toward the glad nor sad(aspects of phenomenal life), who is free from grief and cravings, who has banished the relative consciousness of Good and Evil and who is intently devote- is dear to Me-Bhagavad Gita 12:17
  • He who is tranquil before friend and foe alike, and in encountering adorations and insults and during the experiences of warm and chill and of pleasure and suffering; who has relinquished attachment, regarding blame and praise in the same light; who is quiet and easily contented, not attached to domesticity and of calm disposition and devotional- that person is dear to Me.-Bhagavad Gita 12:18-19
