1 Gita Sloka Every Day - Chapter 18 - Moksha Sanyasa Yoga - Sloka 54
Brahma bhutah prasannatma na shochati na kankshati I
Samah sarveshu bhuteshu madbhaktim labhate param II sloka 54
ब्रह्म भूतः प्रसन्नात्मा न शोचति न काङ्क्षति I
समः सर्वेषु भूतेषु मद्भक्तिं लभते परां II श्लोक 54
Finally Attaining the Supreme Lord, serene minded, he neither grieves nor desires; the same to all beings, he obtains supreme devotion to Me.
A person who has realised the true nature of the soul; as having infinite knowledge; as being absolutely dependent on e and controlled by Me; who is calm in spirit; not affected by various sufferings, due to past karmas;
Such a person does not grieve at the loss of dear things or person, like death of a child etc. He does not desire anything whatsoever. He is indifferent to all beings, other than myself. HE considers all things in the universe, as worthless like straw.
He attains extreme devotion to me, realising as follows: I am the Lord of all. To me creation, maintenance and destruction of the universe is sport. I am free of all evil. I have all unbounded auspicious qualities. I am the ocean of nectar of beauty. I am always in association with Lakshmi. My eyes are beautiful like lotus. I am his own Lord.
