akiṁcanabhavaṁ svāsthaṁ kaupīnatve’pi durlabham
tyāgādāne vihāyāsmādahamāse yathāsukham
Janaka said : The inner freedom which is born of the consciousness that there is nothing but the Self is reare even for one who wears but a loin cloth. Therefore, giving up renunciation and acceptance, I live happily.
kutrāpi khedaḥ kāyasya jihvā kutrāpi khedyate
manaḥ kutrāpi tattyaktvā puruṣārthe sthitaḥ sukham
Sometimes one experiences distress because of one’s body, sometimes because of one’s speech, and sometimes because of one’s mind. Having renounced these, in life’s supreme goal I live happily.
kṛtaṁ kimapi naiva syād iti saṁcintya tattvataḥ
yadā yatkartumāyāti tat kṛtvāse yathāsukham
Recognising that nothing whatsoever is really one by the Self, I do whatever presents itself to be done and so I live happily.
Yogis, who identify themselves with their bodies, insist upon action or inaction. But I live as I please in the absence of attachment and rejection.
arthānarthau na me sthityā gatyā na śayanena vā
tiṣṭhan gacchan svapan tasmādahamāse yathāsukham
No gain or loss accrues to me by standing, walking or sleeping. So I live happily whether I stand, walk or sleep.
svapato nāsti me hāniḥ siddhiryatnavato na vā
nāśollāsau vihāyāsmadahamāse yathāsukham
I lose nothing by sleeping and gain nothing by effort, so consequently I live as I please, abandoning loss and success.
sukhādirūpā niyamaṁ bhāveṣvālokya bhūriśaḥ
śubhāśubhe vihāyāsmādahamāse yathāsukham
Observing repeatedly the inconstancy of pleasure and pain under different circumstances, I have renounced good and evil and I live happily.
