Verse 4.31.27

परस्माद्व्यतिरेकेण नाहमात्मनि किंचन ।
हेमनीवोर्मिकादित्वं न मय्यस्ति विशिष्टता ॥ २७ ॥

parasmādvyatirekeṇa nāhamātmani kiṃcana |
hemanīvormikāditvaṃ na mayyasti viśiṣṭatā || 27 ||

So nothing can shake the faith of that man, who knows himself as no other, beside the Supreme Being who is all in all; and thinks himself to be dependent on the substantiality of God, as the formal ring depends on its substance of gold.
