sadhusv api ca papesu
A person is considered still further advanced when he regards honest well-wishers, affectionate benefactors, the neutral, mediators, the envious, friends and enemies, the pious and the sinners all with an equal mind.

Commentary by Sri Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakur
The yogi sees equally the person who wishes one well (suhrt) his nature, one who actually does good out of affection (mitra), the killer (ari), one who is neutral in times of conflict or honor (udasina), the mediator who tries to resolve conflict between the two sides (madhyastha), the person who deserves hatred because he harms one (dvesya), the relative (bandhuh), the follower of dharma and the follower of adharma. This position is superior to that of seeing dirt and gold as the same.
