यः सर्वत्रानभिस्नेहस्तत्तत्प्राप्य शुभाशुभम्।

।।2.57।।सब जगह आसक्तिरहित हुआ जो मनुष्य उसउस शुभअशुभको प्राप्त करके न तो अभिनन्दित होता है और न द्वेष करता है उसकी बुद्धि प्रतिष्ठित है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The question how does such a person talk is now being answered. He who is without affection even towards friends and relatives, neither praising what is congenial or criticising what is uncongenial is steady in wisdom. This is the meaning.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna explains here that one devoid of attachment to everything, when exposed to that which is good does not rejoice, neither does such a one lament when exposed to that which is not good.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Forming no attachments in any situation means to be indifferent, unconcerned in an aloof state or attitude. Auspicious is a situation that is pleasing and inauspicious is a situation that is displeasing. Lord Krishna is instructing not to be overjoyed by the pleasing nor despondent over the unpleasant. One who can successfully engage themselves thus is sthita-prajna situated in the perfect knowledge of transcendental consciousness. The next lower stage is given in the next verse.
