Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

7 8 The Supreme Lord Krishna confirms that the qualities He is describing are applicable to yo mad-bhaktah which means His exclusive devotee. The word advesta means free from hatred for any being at any time. Maitrah means benign and showing good will to all, both well-wishers and ill-wishers by the understanding that they are merely following the tendencies of the impulse imparted to them by the Supreme Lord in relation to ones own good and bad actions. Karunah means compassionate, to be sympathetic towards the sufferings of others, friend and foe alike. Nirmamah means devoid of sentiments of possessiveness and ego related conceptions mine-ness regarding the physical body, family and associated relationships and objects. Nirahankarah means free from the false conception of thinking ones self to be the physical body and consequently unaffected by the dualities of material existence such as pain and pleasure, praise and ridicule, joy and grief, etc. all based upon the mentality of the mind. Ksami means tolerant, to be unaffected by external incidents such as physical accidents or catastrophes. Santustah means always content with whatever comes along by its own accord for the purpose of bodily sustenance. Satatam yogi is one who always engages themselves to the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness in loving devotion to the Supreme Lord. Satatam means always and has two meaning: one is to be continuously and perpetually engaged in bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to Lord Krishna at every moment and two is to engage in this bhakti to Lord Krishna in all ways meaning in every possibility and facet of ones life. Yatatma means the ability to govern and control the workings of the mind. Drdha-niscayah means firmly resolved in the knowledge of the Vedic scriptures regarding the immortality of the atma or eternal soul and the Supreme Lord and irrevocably established in bhakti to the Lord Krishna. Arpita-mano-buddhir means who dedicates their intelligence and consciousness to the Supreme Lord by performing activities dedicated to Him without desire for recompense. Then when the Supreme Lord Krishna is worshipped in this way He would Himself guide one internally to achieve atma tattva or realisation of the soul and attain communion with Him. One who possesses all these qualities is very dear to Supreme Lord Krishna and is me priyah or the recepient of His love.
