Tṛpyat (तृप्यत्) refers to a “satisfied (person)”, according to Vācaspatimiśra’s commentary on Sāṅkhyakārikā (Kārikā 19).—Accordingly, [while equating udāsīna with neutrality—mādhyasthya]: “Therefore, because the three Guṇasare absent, neutrality [is mentioned]. A happy person who is satisfied (tṛpyat) with happiness and a sad person who detests sorrow are not neutral. Thus, one who is neutral is free of [happiness and sorrow] and he is also called udāsīna”.
