Bhagavad Gita on the Person who has risen above the Gunas

Light, activity, delusion, when present, he hates not, nor longs for them when absent.He who seated like one unconcerned, is not move by the ‘gunas’, who, knowing that the ‘gunas’ operate, is self-centered and swerves not.Alike in pleasure and pain, who dwells in the self; to whom a clod of earth, precious stone and gold are alike; to whom the dear and the not-dear are the same; firm; the same in censure and self praise. The same in honor and dishonor; the same to friend and foe; abandoning all undertakings – he is said to have crossed beyond the Gunas.
