Verse 18.39

चीवरधरणं मुनिनो लोकोत्तरं अत्र संशयो नास्ति ।
आहाराहरणम् अथो लोकोत्तरम् एव सुगतस्य ॥ ३९ ॥

cīvaradharaṇaṃ munino lokottaraṃ atra saṃśayo nāsti |
āhārāharaṇam atho lokottaram eva sugatasya || 39 ||

The Seer’s wearing of his mendicant’s robe is transcendental. Of this there is no doubt. The Sugata’s eating of his food is likewise transcendental. (39)
