Discussion : 2.

The word anapeksah or independent means free from expectations and indifferent to things that have even come on their own accord.

Sucih or clean denotes both external cleanliness of the physical body and internal cleanliness of mind.

Daksah means expert and infers lack of laziness.

Udasinah or impartial means not taking sides.

Gata-vyathah or untroubled means free from anguish.

The phrasesarva-arambha-parityagi means renouncing all endeavours that are opposed to devotion.

Such a devotee of Lord Krishna possessing these qualities is very dear to Him.
