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.
