Bhagavad Gita Chapter 12 Verse 15

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 12 श्लोक 15

यस्मान्नोद्विजते लोको लोकान्नोद्विजते च यः।
हर्षामर्षभयोद्वेगैर्मुक्तो यः स च मे प्रियः।।12.15।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

12.15 He, too, owing to whom the world is not disturbed, and who is not disturbed by the world, who is free from joy, impatience, fear and anxiety, is dear to Me.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

12.15 That person who is engaged in Karma Yoga does not become the cause of fear to the world; he does nothing to cause fear to the world. He has no cause to fear the world, i.e., no action on the part of others can cause him fear because of the certainty that he is not inimical to the world. Therefore he is not in the habit of showing favour towards someone and intolerance towards others; he has no fear of some or repulsion for others. Such a person is dear to Me.
