Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12 Verse 14

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 12 श्लोक 14

सन्तुष्टः सततं योगी यतात्मा दृढनिश्चयः।
मय्यर्पितमनोबुद्धिर्यो मद्भक्तः स मे प्रियः।।12.14।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

12.14. Who remains well-content and is a man of Yoga at all times; who is self-controlled and is firmly resolute; and who has offered to Me his mind and intellect-that devotee of Mine is dear to Me.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

12.13-14 Advesta etc. Santustah etc. [Friend] : he who has friend-liness (or goodwill) i.e. unselfishness. In the same manner compassionate [is to be interpreted]. These are mine etc., is the sence of mine (or sense of possessiveness); I am generous, I am powerful, I am victorious etc., is the sense of I (or egotism). In whom these two are absent that man is free from the senses of mine and of I. Forbearance : a thought that entertains no enmity even towards an enemy who has [actually] injured. A man of Yoga at all times : because his internal organ remains completely iet even at the stage of his mundane dealings.
