Verse 18.37

लोकोत्तरा भगवतो चर्या लोकोत्तरं कुशलमूलं ।
गमनं स्थितं निषण्णं शयितं लोकोत्तरं मुनिनो ॥ ३७ ॥

lokottarā bhagavato caryā lokottaraṃ kuśalamūlaṃ |
gamanaṃ sthitaṃ niṣaṇṇaṃ śayitaṃ lokottaraṃ munino || 37 ||

The conduct of the Exalted One is transcendental, his root of virtue is transcendental. The Seer’s walking, standing, sitting and lying down are transcendental. (37)
