Gita : Ch-12. Slo-17. Discussion-1.

Very Important : - follow  the Lord to become dear to HIM!

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-12. ( Bhakti-yogam )

Slokam-17. ( One who neither grasps pleasure or grief, who neither laments nor desires, and who renounces both auspicious and inauspicious things, is very dear to Me. )

yo na  hrshyati  na  dveshti  na  socati  na  kankshati,

subhasubhaparityagi  bhaktiman  yah  sa  me  priyah.

yah  na  hrshyati  =  one  who  never  becomes  pleasure  living;

na  dveshti  =  never  be  in  sorrow / distress/ grieves;

na  socati  =  never  laments;

na  kankshati  =  never  desires;

subha-asubha-parityagi  =  renounces  auspicious  as  well  as  inauspicious  ( renounces good  and  bad );

sa  bhaktiman   me  priyah  =  that  devotee  is  very  dear  to  Me.

Discussion : 1

A pure devotee is neither happy nor distressed over material gain and loss, nor is he very much anxious to get a son or disciple, nor is he distressed by not getting them. If he loses anything which is very dear to him, he does not lament. Similarly, if he does not get what he desires, he is not distressed. He is transcendental in the face of all kinds of auspicious, inauspicious and sinful activities. He is prepared to accept all kinds of risks for the satisfaction of the Supreme Lord. Nothing is an impediment in the discharge of his devotional service. Such a devotee is very dear to Krishna.

Lord Krishna's devotee who is not exultant upon obtaining things which cause joy in mortals, who hates nothing, who grieves not over things that cause grief to mortals such as the death of family members, loss of wealth etc., who craves nothing being desire less for anything in the material existence, who renounces both pious and impious acts knowing they both result in bondage to karma or reactions to actions. Such a devotee is very dear to Lord Krishna.
