Anapekshah means always ready for the unexpected – in other words, ready for anything. It is a very daring attitude, because it means telling life, “I’m not concerned with what you send me. Good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant, it doesn’t matter; I can make the best of whatever comes.” The opposite of this is not preparedness, it is rigidity.
-Eknath Easwaran, Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Vol. II
