And the ability not only to read many books on different subject matters but to understand them and apply them when necessary is intelligence (#i#medhā#/i#), another opulence. The ability to overcome unsteadiness is called firmness or steadfastness (#i#dhṛti#/i#). And when one is fully qualified yet is humble and gentle, and when one is able to keep his balance both in sorrow and in the ecstasy of joy, he has the opulence called patience (#i#kṣamā#/i#). #/p# #/div# #/div#
