Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 2, Verse 57

Chapter 2: Contents of the Gita Summarized
Verse: 57
yah sarvatranabhisnehas
tat tat prapya subhasubham
nabhinandati na dveshti
tasya prajna pratishthita

Translation:
In the material world, one who is unaffected by whatever good or evil he may obtain, neither praising it nor despising it, is firmly fixed in perfect knowledge.

Explanation:
Srila Prabhupada explains, "As long as one is in the material world there is always the possibility of good and evil because this world is full of duality. But one who is fixed in Krishna consciousness is not affected by good and evil, because he is simply concerned with Krishna, who is all-good absolute. Such consciousness in Krishna situates one in a perfect transcendental position called, technically, samadhi."

Please read the Sanskrit Verse and the Prabhupada's Purport.
