Verse 5.18.31

ज्ञातवानसि तत्त्वं स्वमेकया सूक्ष्मया धिया ।
जातोऽसि निरहंकारो व्योमवत्तिष्ठ निर्मलः ॥ ३१ ॥

jñātavānasi tattvaṃ svamekayā sūkṣmayā dhiyā |
jāto'si nirahaṃkāro vyomavattiṣṭha nirmalaḥ || 31 ||

You have known the true essence of your being by your right discernment (that it is He—the Sat); you are thereby freed from the sense of your personality, and are set free as the subtile air.
