श्रीभगवानुवाच । 

प्रकाशं च प्रवृत्तिं च मोहमेव च पाण्डव ।
त द्वेष्टि सम्प्रवृत्तानि न निवृत्तानि काङ्क्षति ॥ 
उदासीनवदासीनो गुणैर्यो न विचाल्यते । 
गुणा वर्तन्त इत्येव यो‌உवतिष्ठति नेङ्गते ॥
समदुःखसुखः स्वस्थः समलोष्टाश्मकाञ्चनः ।
तुल्यप्रियाप्रियो धीरस्तुल्यनिन्दात्मसंस्तुतिः॥ 
मानापमानयोस्तुल्यस्तुल्यो मित्रारिपक्षयोः ।
 सर्वारम्भपरित्यागी गुणातीतः स उच्यते ॥

Translation: The Blessed Lord said: Light, activity, and delusion, when present, O Pandava, he hates not, nor longs for them when absent. Seated like one unconcerned, he is not moved by the 'GUNAS, ' who, knowing that the 'GUNAS' operate, is self-centred and swerves not. He is alike in pleasure and pain; dwells in the Self; for him a clod of earth, a precious stone and gold are alike; the dear and the not-dear are the same; remaining firm, he is same in censure and self-praise, honour and dishonour; treats alike a friend and foe; abandoning all fruitive undertakings --- such a man is said to have crossed beyond the GUNAS.
