भगवद् गीता अध्याय 13 श्लोक 10

असक्ितरनभिष्वङ्गः पुत्रदारगृहादिषु।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

13.10 Non-attachment and absence of fondness with regard to sons, wives, homes, etc., and constant eanimity of the mind with regard to the attainment of the desirable and the undesirable;

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

13.10 Non-attachment means freedom from attachment to things other than the self. Absecne of clinging to son, wife, home and the like means absence of excessive affection for these beyond the limits allowed by the Sastras. Constant even-mindedness to all desirable and undesriable events means the state of freedom from joy and grief with regard to occurrences springing from desire.

Transliteration Bhagavad Gita 13.10

Asaktiranabhishwangah putradaaragrihaadishu; Nityam cha samachittatwam ishtaanishtopapattishu.
