You will attain equanimity of mind, peace and poise. If you are balanced in pleasure and pain, gain and loss, victory and defeat, sin will not touch thee; you will not be affected by the fruits of your actions

He who has destroyed desire is really a harmonised, peaceful and happy man. Desire is insatiable. It is born of Rajas or passion. It is born of ignorance. It is an enemy of peace, wisdom and devotion.
