Virtue and value of equanimity
Is explained and eulogized in Gita
By Lord Krishna to Prince Arjuna,
Then a delusional and surreal warrior -
Perform your duty equipoised
With due discretion and dispassion
Without any emotion, joy or pain
Towards plausible success or failure
Abandoning all attachment and desire
Is essence of the yoga of equanimity
That unwinds true cosmic knowledge
Guiding one to the path of liberation.
Knowledge and wisdom thus imparted
It was true then, and it is true now
But only few righteous souls practise it
Knowing it's beyond space, age and time.
