श्री भगवानुवाच
प्रजहाति यदा कामान् सर्वान् पार्थ मनोगतान् ।
आत्मन्येवात्मना तुष्टः स्थितप्रज्ञस्तदोच्यते ।।

śrī bhagavānuvāca
prajahāti yadā kāmān sarvān pārtha manogatān ।
ātmanyevātmanā tuṣṭaḥ sthitaprajñastadocyate ।।
One who directs his mind to meditate unceasingly on Atma-svarupa, renouncing all worldly pleasures, know Oh partha that person will be known as a sthitaprajña..

The anecdote of Prahlada is often cited here for an example of sthitaprajña
Hiranyakasipu had directed an unimaginable number of venomous snakes unto Prahalada. They repeatedly bite the kid's body injected a huge amount of deadly dose of poison..

But Prahlada had already withdrawn his mind inside. He was meditating upon Nrisimha & did not even flinch
Any variation, small or big & at the same time good or bad happening to the body will never be noticed by sthitaprajña. They are constantly meditating on Atma-svarupa & never indulge in external world even for a second.
Same as (V)
Kuntiputra, when a person casts of all durguna-s (anger, lust, greed etc..) and always meditates on paramatma & remains delighted on that experience, then that person is known as an 'aproksha jnani'
