भावेष्वभावघनभावनया महात्मा निर्मुक्तसंकलनमम्बरवत्स्थितेषु ।
चित्तं प्रति स्वमुदितो विततैकरूपी ज्ञस्तिष्ठति स्वपिति जीवति नित्यतृप्तः ॥ ४४ ॥

bhāveṣvabhāvaghanabhāvanayā mahātmā nirmuktasaṃkalanamambaravatsthiteṣu |
cittaṃ prati svamudito vitataikarūpī jñastiṣṭhati svapiti jīvati nityatṛptaḥ || 44 ||

By thinking existence as non-existent, the great souled man gets rid of all his desires, and sets himself aloof as in the air; and with his joyous spirits that know no change, the wise man sits and sleeps and lives always content with himself.
