Verse 2.4.1

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
सौम्याम्बुत्वे तरङ्गत्वे सलिलस्याम्बुता यथा ।
समैवाब्धौ तथाऽदेहसदेहमुनिमुक्तता ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
saumyāmbutve taraṅgatve salilasyāmbutā yathā |
samaivābdhau tathā'dehasadehamunimuktatā || 1 ||

Vasishtha said:—I know gentle Rama that, liberation of the soul, whether in its embodied or disembodied state is both alike, as the sea-water and its waves are the same liquid substance.
