Verse 1.2.29

एतेऽष्टौ मन्त्रिणः प्रोक्ताः समनीरागचेतसः ।
जीवन्मुक्ता महात्मानो यथाप्राप्तानुवर्तिनः ॥ २९ ॥

ete'ṣṭau mantriṇaḥ proktāḥ samanīrāgacetasaḥ |
jīvanmuktā mahātmāno yathāprāptānuvartinaḥ || 29 ||

These were the eight ministers of Rama, who are said to have been equally dispassionate in their minds, and content with what was their lot. They were great souls, and free in their lives.
