Uddhava Gita Teachings on the Qualities of a Liberated Person

A liberated person does not consider himself as the doer of any action and all actions take place in the Totality and the bodies are only instruments through which the Totality seems to work. So he is not at all concerned with what happens in this world drama.
He is undifferentiated in his outlook and has an even mind which has no preferences or choice.
Whether somebody does a work well or in a bad way, he neither praises nor rebukes. He does not do, talk about or think of anything as good or bad. He is always drowned in the bliss of his own Self. He is not concerned whether people worship him or torment him.
