  3. Who is without egotism,

  4. Who is selfless,

  5. Who treats alike cold and heat, happiness and misery,

  6. Who is always forgiving,

  7. Who is always contented,

  8. Whose resolutions are firm,

  9. Who has dedicated mind and soul to God,

  10. Who causes no dread,

  11. Who is not afraid of others,

  12. Who is free from exultation, sorrow, and fear,

  13. Who is pure,

  14. Who is versed in action and yet remains unaffected by it,

  15. Who renounces all fruits of action, good or bad,

  16. Who treats friend and enemy alike,

  17. Who is untouched by respect or disrespect,

  18. Who is not puffed up by praise,

  19. Who does not go under when people speak ill of him,

  20. Who loves silence and solitude,

  21. Who has a disciplined mind.
