Gita : Ch-12. Slo-17. Discussion-2.

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.


One who neither rejoices upon receiving something delightful nor despairs in receiving something that is not a delight, no laments when the delightful object is lost, nor desires to possess it again and who renounces both positive and negative actions which bind one to karma or reactions to actions with positive and negative consequences; such a devotee of Lord Krishna is very dear to Him.

The devotee of Lord Krishna who neither rejoices on receiving what is pleasant or laments at receiving what is displeasing, who neither grieves at that which is lost or hankers after that which is yet to be obtained, who habitually renounces the desire for rewards for all actions and who is full of bhakti or exclusive loving devotion for the Supreme Lord Krishna is very dear to Him.
