|He is dear to
Me, who is little disturbed by the world; who does not disturb the world and, who is
equable in joy, anger, fear and worry.
He is My dear
devotee, who desires for nothing; who is pure, efficient, impartial, free from distress of
the mind and, who abandons all initiative.
"I like him best who does not rejoice, does not hate, does not grieve, does not long
for things and who is unaffected both by the auspicious and inauspicious happen -ings and
who is devoted to Me. "I like him most who is well-disposed both towards his friends
and enemies; who treats honour and dishonour alike; who reacts in the same way to cold and
heat, joy and sorrow and is thus free from attachment.
"I like that man most who treats praise and blame in
the same way; who is silent, contented with whatever comes his way, is homeless, firm in
judgement and devoted. "Indeed, those men of faith who serve the dharmic law,
as enunciated by Me above, and have Me as their goal, are very dear to Me."
