Verse 5.70.15

चित्तस्य बाधिका शक्तिर्भावाभावोपतापदा ।
आत्मतामागते चित्ते तस्य किं बाधते कथम् ॥ १५ ॥

cittasya bādhikā śaktirbhāvābhāvopatāpadā |
ātmatāmāgate citte tasya kiṃ bādhate katham || 15 ||

The mind possesses the pains-giving power, of giving us the perception of our pain and pleasure, and the sense of our want and bitter sorrow; but when the mind is assimilated with the soul, how can it have the power of annoying us anymore?
