February – Steadfast Resolution

He who is established and unshaken;
he who is alike in pleasure and pain,
who is the same in pleasant and unpleasant,
in praise and blame, and steady;
he who is alike in honor and dishonor,
the same to friend and foe,
giving up all selfish undertakings,
he is said to have crossed beyond the qualities of Nature.
And He who, crossing over these qualities,
serves Me with unwavering devotion,
becomes fit to attain oneness with the Supreme.


[Bhagvad Gita]
