The Blessed Lord said: Gentle, modest, kind,
Pure of heart, of even-keeled mind,
Steadfast of purpose, fearless, radiant—
These are the traits of one to God inclined.
Vainglory, self-conceit and arrogance,
Wrathfulness and restless ignorance,
All these, O Pandava, identify
Those in whose nature all the demons dance.
All qualities Divine to freedom lead,
Demonic ones continued bondage breed.
Fear not, Arjuna—you have long refined
Such qualities that soon will see you freed!
