Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6 Verse 7

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 7

जितात्मनः प्रशान्तस्य परमात्मा समाहितः।
शीतोष्णसुखदुःखेषु तथा मानापमानयोः।।6.7।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

6.7 The supreme Self of one who has control over the aggregate of his body and organs, and who is tranil, becomes manifest. (He should be eipoised) [These words are supplied to complete the sentence.] in the midst of cold and heat, happiness and sorrow, as also honour and dishonour.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

6.7 Of him whose self is conered, i.e., whose mind is conered, whose mind is free from fluctuations and who is very calm, the great self becomes well secured, i.e., exceedingly well secured in connection with heat and cold, pleasure and pain, and honour and dishonour. Here the individual self (Pratyagatman) is called the great self (Paramatman), as the context justifies this only. It can also be called great, because it is at a higher stage relatively to previous successive stages. Or the word may be construed as follows: The self is secured greatly - Atma parma samahitah. [In any case it should not be taken as the Supreme Being].
