Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-12. ( Bhakti-yogam )
Slokam-13 & 14. ( One who is not envious but who is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor, who is free from false ego and equal both in happiness and distress, who is always satisfied and engaged in devotional service with determination and whose mind and intelligence are in agreement with Me-he is very dear to Me.)
adveshta sarvabhutanam maitrah karuna eva ca,
nirmamo nirahankarah samaduhkhasukhah kshami.
santushtah satatam yogi yatatma drddhaniscayah,
mayyarpitamanobuddhih yo madbhaktah sa me priyah.
sarvabhutanam adveshta = not envious towards all living entities;
maitrah karuna eva ca = also friendly and kindly;
nirmamo nirahankarah = with no sense of proprietorship and without false ego;
sama-duhkha-sukhah = minding / taking in, distress and happiness equally;
kshami = with forgiving character.
satatam santushtah = always satisfied;
yogi = one who is with concentrating mind;
yatatma = having mind under control;
drddha-niscayah = with determination;
may-arpita-mano-buddhih = with full devotion and surrender his mind and intellect unto Me;
mad-bhaktah yah = one who is My devotee;
sa me priyah = he is dear to Me.
Satatam yogi is one who always engages themselves to the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness in loving devotion to the Supreme Lord.
Satatam means always and has two meaning: one is to be continuously and perpetually engaged in bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to Lord Krishna at every moment and two is to engage in this bhakti to Lord Krishna in all ways meaning in every possibility and facet of one's life.
Yatatma means the ability to govern and control the workings of the mind.
Drdha-niscayah means firmly resolved in the knowledge of the Vedic scriptures regarding the immortality of the atma or eternal soul and the Supreme Lord and irrevocably established in bhakti to the Lord Krishna.
Arpita-mano-buddhir means who dedicates their intelligence and consciousness to the Supreme Lord by performing activities dedicated to Him without desire for recompense.
Then when the Supreme Lord Krishna is worshiped in this way He would Himself guide one internally to achieve atma tattvam or realisation of the soul and attain communion with Him.
One who possesses all these qualities is very dear to Supreme Lord Krishna and is me priyah or the recipient of His love.
