|21. Sthitapragna (1)
(This means One who keeps his mind stable under any situation,
one who does not flinch,
This is the one who is calm and composed in any event. One of the most
preached by Lord Krishna to Arjun, His disciple, in the Geeta).
O Lord, how to know a sthitapragna in Samaadhi (the culmination
point of meditation where
one forgets oneself in search of the supreme knowledge) ?
How does an intellectually stable muni (a rishi) speak,
live and move?
(A question from Arjun).
"One who gives up all lust and lives within, one
whose soul is satisfied,
is a Sthitapragna.One who has no anguish or agony in heart,
who has no craving for happiness,who has no attachment anywhere,
who is the same in joy or sorrow, who has no hatred is a man of stable
(Answer from Lord Krishna).
