Chapter 12 Verse 19 of 20

| | समः शत्रौ च मित्रॆ च | तथा मानापमानयॊः | शीतॊष्ण-सुख-दुःखॆषु | समः सन्́ग-विवर्जितः | तुल्य-निंदा-स्तुतिर् मौनी | संतुष्टॊ यॆन कॆनचित् | अनिकॆतः स्थिर-मतिर् | भक्तिमान् मॆ प्रियॊ नरः | |


One who is equal to friends and enemies, who is equipoised in honor and dishonor, heat and cold, happiness and distress, fame and infamy, who is always free from contaminating association, always silent and satisfied with anything, who doesn't care for any residence, who is fixed in knowledge and who is engaged in devotional service — such a person is very dear to Me.
