तां परित्यज्य भोगास्थां स्वात्मैकत्वगतिं भज ।
अनात्ममयभावेन चित्तं स्थितिमुपागतम् ।
यदा तदैतदाजातं जगज्जालमसन्मयम् ॥ ११ ॥

tāṃ parityajya bhogāsthāṃ svātmaikatvagatiṃ bhaja |
anātmamayabhāvena cittaṃ sthitimupāgatam |
yadā tadaitadājātaṃ jagajjālamasanmayam || 11 ||

Forsake therefore your desire of enjoyment, and seek to be united with your spiritual essence; because the thought of your materiality (or being a material body), has taken possession of your mind.
