hantātmajñānasya dhīrasya khelato bhogalīlayā
na hi saṁsāravāhīkairmūḍhaiḥ saha samānatā
Janaka: Oh, the wise man, the knower of the Self, who plays the game of life bears no resemblance whatever to deluded beasts of burden of the world.
yat padaṁ prepsavo dīnāḥ śakrādyāḥ sarvadevatāḥ
aho tatra sthito yogī na harṣamupagacchati
Truly the yogi does not feel elated even at being established in that state which Indra and all other Gods hanker after and thus become unhappy
tajjñasya puṇyapāpābhyāṁ sparśo hyantarna jāyate
na hyākāśasya dhūmena dṛśyamānāpi saṅgatiḥ
Surely the heart of the one who has known the Self is untouched by virtue and vice, just as the sky is not touched by smoke, even though it appears to be.
ātmaivedaṁ jagatsarvaṁ jñātaṁ yena mahātmanā
yadṛcchayā vartamānaṁ taṁ niṣeddhuṁ kṣameta kaḥ
Who can prevent the great-souled person, who has known this Entire Universe to be the Self alone, from acting spontaneously?
ābrahmastaṁbaparyante bhūtagrāme caturvidhe
vijñasyaiva hi sāmarthyamicchānicchāvivarjane
Of all four categories of beings, from Brahma down to a clump of grass, it is the wise one alone who is capable of renouncing craving and aversion.
ātmānamadvayaṁ kaścijjānāti jagadīśvaram
yad vetti tatsa kurute na bhayaṁ tasya kutracit
Rare is the man who knows the Self as One without a second and as Lord of the Universe. He does what he considers worth doing and is not afraid of anything.
