|Chapter 12||The Path of Devotion||Verse 17|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The devotee of Lord Krishna who neither rejoices on receiving what is pleasant or laments at receiving what is displeasing, who neither grieves at that which is lost or hankers after that which is yet to be obtained, who habitually renounces the desire for rewards for all actions and who is full of bhakti or exclusive loving devotion for the Supreme Lord Krishna is very dear to Him.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
14 Lord Krishna's devotee who is not exultant upon obtaining things which cause joy in mortals, who hates nothing, who grieves not over things that cause grief to mortals such as the death of family members, loss of wealth etc., who craves nothing being desireless for anything in the material existence, who renounces both pious and impious acts knowing they both result in bondage to karma or reactions to actions. Such a devotee is very dear to Lord Krishna.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
One who neither rejoices upon receiving something delightful nor despairs in receiving something that is not a delight, no laments when the delightful object is lost, nor desires to possess it again and who renounces both positive and negative actions which bind one to karma or reactions to actions with positive and negative consequenses; such a devotee of Lord Krishna is very dear to Him.
