Gita : Ch-12. Slo-13 & 14. Discussion-2.

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.
