Background

A description of the experience

The Bhagavad Gita [translated by W J Johnson]

Without hatred for any creature, friendly and compassionate, free from possessiveness and egoism, indifferent to pleasure and pain, enduring.

Contented, ever the self controlled yogin, certain of purpose, his mind and intelligence concentrated on me, he who is devoted to me is dear to me.

He is dear to me who does not afflict the world and is not afflicted by it – who is free from excitement, impatience, fear and anxiety.

He is dear to me who, devoted to me, is disinterested, pure, able, non partisan, unworried and does not initiate any actions.

He is dear to me who, filled with devotion, is neither excited nor repelled by things, neither grieves nor gives way to longing and who abandons both the auspicious and the inauspicious

The man is dear to me who, filled with devotion, is the same with regard to enemies and friends, in honour and dishonour, the same in heat and cold, pleasure and suffering, who, freed from attachment, weighs blame and praise the same, who is silent, satisfied in all circumstances, homeless and firm minded
