He who, through the likeness of the Self. O Arjuna,
sees equality everywhere, be it pleasure or pain,
he is regarded as the highest Yogi.
Commentary: He sees that whatever is pleasure or pain to himself is also pleasure or pain to all other beings. He does not harm anyone. He is quite harmless. He wishes good to all. He is compassionate to all creatures. He has a very soft and large heart. He sees thus equality everywhere as he is endowed with the right knowledge of the Self, as he beholds the Self only everywhere, and as he is established in the unity of the Self. Therefore he is considered as the highest among all Yogis. (Cf. VI. 47)
