Gita : Ch-12. Slo-16. Discussion-3.

Very Important slokam : tells us the devotees most  dear  to  God

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-12. ( Bhakti-yogam )

Slokam-16. ( A devotee who is not dependant on the ordinary course of activities, who is pure, expert, without cares, free from all pains, and who does not strive for some result, is very dear to Me.)

anapekshah   sucirdakshah  udasino  gatavyathah,

sarvarambhaparityagi  yo  madbhaktah  sa  me  priyah.

anapekshah  =  one  who  has  no  need  of  anything;

sucih  =  with  inner  and  outer  cleanliness ( i.e, Pure );

dakshah  =  clever  and  expert  in  his  karma-s;

 udasinah  =  free  from /  without  interest  in  anything;

 gatavyathah  =  without  any  anxiety;

sarva-arambha-parityagi  =  renouncer  of  all   endeavors;

 mad-bhaktah  yah  =  My  devotee  ( any  one );

sah  me  priyah  =  he  ( the  one  with  above  qualities )  is  dear  to  Me.

Discussion : 3.

One who craves for nothing and remains unattached to the worldly objects which come unsolicited of their own accord, who is cleansed within and without, who is expert in applying the teachings of the Vedic scriptures and performing the obligatory rites, who is indifferent to mundane matters and unconcerned about insult or praise while renouncing all conceptions of doership in all undertakings except those that increase bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to the Supreme Lord is very dear to Lord Krishna.
