Bhagavad-gītā AS IT IS 2.55: The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: when a man gives up all varieties of desire for sense enjoyment, gratification, which arise from mind, from mental concoction, and when his mind, thus purified, finds satisfaction in the self alone, then he is said to be in pure transcendental consciousness.BG 2.56: One who is not disturbed in mind even amidst the threefold miseries or elated when there is happiness, and who is free from attachment, fear and anger, is called a sage of steady mind.one who, having renounced all desires born of the mind, is satisfied in the self and by the self, is said to be one whose insight is steady.when the jévätmä gives up all material desires arising from the mind and when, with his mind thus controlled, he becomes satisfied by the blissful nature of the self alone, then he is to be known as sthita-prajïa, a person of steady intelligence.Amid suffering and happiness his mind is neither deluded nor delighted. He who is free from desire and whose passion, fear, and anger have subsided is said to be a sage of steady mind.One who is not disturbed by the three types of miseries (adhyätmika, adhibhautika and adhidaivika), who remains free from desires in the presence of happiness, and who is free from attachment, fear and anger, is called a steady minded sage.Bhagavad-gītā As It IsHis Divine Grace A.
