Lord Krishna explained in the previous slokam that by following renunciation for the rewards of actions one achieves the Supreme peace.
Now explaining further He declares that His devotee who has become renounced should also possess the virtues given in seven slokam-s beginning with :
advesta sarva- bhutanam meaning free from enmity towards any living being.
One reflects that all misfortunes are due to their past karma or reactions from one's own actions.
One is also karuna or compassionate to those in need
and is nirmamo or free from possessiveness of even relatives and nirahankarah or ego sense from even one's physical body and things other than the atma or eternal soul.
Who is dukha-sukha or even minded and self-satisfied in happiness or distress with whatever comes of its own accord.
Who is ksami or tolerant and drdha-niscaya meaning firmly resolved and resolutely determined to fully follow the teachings of the spiritual master and the Vedic scriptures and perform bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to Lord Krishna.
One who has ceased to pursue the desires of the senses and mental tendencies of the mind and has instead directed their consciousness internally to the atma in the heart surrendering their mind and intelligence to the Supreme Lord Krishna verily worship Him and are very dear to Him.
