The unchanging one who neither accepts change nor resists it; who is neither a seeker of pleasure nor afraid of pain; who neither despises pleasure nor glorifies suffering.
Pleasure, he lets come to him; pain, he lets come to him. And when he meets them equally, they both pass through him, without leaving a trace behind. He doesn’t have ideals.
He does not live by instruction manuals. He follows no religion. Let alone be dominated by the world; let alone listening to the world he listens not even to himself.
He is in need of no advice. No opinions mean anything to him, neither others’ nor his own. In the middle of opinions he is opinion free.
That is the sthitpragya.
