Verse 1.10.45

निरस्तास्थो निराशोऽसौ निरीहोऽसौ निरास्पदः ।
न मूढो न च मुक्तोऽसौ तेन तप्यामहे भृशम् ॥ ४५ ॥

nirastāstho nirāśo'sau nirīho'sau nirāspadaḥ |
na mūḍho na ca mukto'sau tena tapyāmahe bhṛśam || 45 ||

He is altogether quiescent, without any desire or effort, and devoid of a mainstay; he is neither captivated by any thing nor freed from worldly thoughts. These are the reasons which afflict us most.
