Verse 5.69.11

अथवा तमपि त्यक्त्वा चेत्यांशं शान्तचिद्धनः ।
जीवस्तिष्ठतु संशान्तो ज्वलन्मणिरिवात्मनि ॥ ११ ॥

athavā tamapi tyaktvā cetyāṃśaṃ śāntaciddhanaḥ |
jīvastiṣṭhatu saṃśānto jvalanmaṇirivātmani || 11 ||

Or it may forsake its intelligential part (i.e. forget its intelligence), and become one with the mass of the Intellect itself. The living soul thus becomes calm and quiet in itself and shines with as serene a light, as a bright gem in the mine or quarry.
