Verse 4.54.24

सत्यास्थायामसत्यां तु किंनिष्ठा वासना भवेत् ।
भावनाक्षयतः सिद्धिस्ततः प्राप्यं न शिष्यते ।
तस्मादसदिदं सर्वं विज्ञेयं हेलयेद्धया ॥ २४ ॥

satyāsthāyāmasatyāṃ tu kiṃniṣṭhā vāsanā bhavet |
bhāvanākṣayataḥ siddhistataḥ prāpyaṃ na śiṣyate |
tasmādasadidaṃ sarvaṃ vijñeyaṃ helayeddhayā || 24 ||

Our reliance on unrealities proving to be unreal, leaves no room for our thinking about them; the suppression of their thoughts produces that perfection, insouciance, than which there is nothing more desirable on earth. Forget therefore all that is unreal.
