A devotee is one who treats abuse, criticism and praise equally. He keeps his mind always silent. He is always silent in praise and abuse. He is always satisfied, never discontented and never allows his mind to go up or down. A devotee never thinks, “This is my house”, but instead thinks that he is a traveler in this world for a short time. He is always steady minded and is dear to the Lord.
Bhagavad Gita 12:19 translated by
