Verse 5.70.30

प्राप्य स्वां पदवीं पुण्यां यथेदं भ्रमितं जगत् ।
शैलसंस्थ इवाधःस्थं हसन्पश्यति धीरधीः ॥ ३० ॥

prāpya svāṃ padavīṃ puṇyāṃ yathedaṃ bhramitaṃ jagat |
śailasaṃstha ivādhaḥsthaṃ hasanpaśyati dhīradhīḥ || 30 ||

The man of sedate understanding, who has attained this holy state, laughs to scorn and spurn at the whirling orb of the earth; as one sitting on a high hill, derides at the objects lying below it.
