Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 6
Atmasamyama Yoga

Among the dear ones and the others when worshipping according to scriptures, the additions or defects, if any, will be treated with equal eye, thus in Garuda Purana. सुह्त् is one who performs actions without any expectation in return. मित्रम् is one who even while pointing the places of pain extends protection. One, who harms, is the enemy. उदासीन is one who desists either from helping or harming. मध्यस्थ is one neutral who does not act when any thing is required to be done. One, who does the unpleasant things, is the hateful.
One who is affectionate without any expectation is the magnanimous one. Seeing suffering the one who extends help is the friend. One who causes pain is evil. One who does not reciprocate friendship even when given friendship is ungrateful. One who does good to others only if good was done for them is known as mediocre. The magnanimous one referred to here is the Supreme Lord.
