Verse 5.51.18

कदाहं त्यक्तमनने पदे परमपावने ।
चिरं विश्रान्तिमेष्यामि मेरुश्रृङ्ग इवाम्बुदः ॥ १८ ॥

kadāhaṃ tyaktamanane pade paramapāvane |
ciraṃ viśrāntimeṣyāmi meruśrṛṅga ivāmbudaḥ || 18 ||

When shall I find my permanent rest in that state of holy and transcendent thoughtlessness, and remain above all the rest, as a cloud rests over the top of the Sumeru mountain, or as the polar star stands above the pole without changing its pace.
