Verse 6.74.36

शान्ताशेषविशेषणो विगतभीः संत्यक्तसर्वैषणो गत्वानूनमकिंचनत्वमरिषु त्यक्त्वा समग्रां श्रियम् ।
शान्ताहंकृतिरस्तदेहकलनस्तेष्वेव भिक्षामट न्मामप्युज्झितवानलं यदिभवस्युच्चैस्त्वमुच्चैरसि ॥ ३६ ॥

śāntāśeṣaviśeṣaṇo vigatabhīḥ saṃtyaktasarvaiṣaṇo gatvānūnamakiṃcanatvamariṣu tyaktvā samagrāṃ śriyam |
śāntāhaṃkṛtirastadehakalanasteṣveva bhikṣāmaṭa nmāmapyujjhitavānalaṃ yadibhavasyuccaistvamuccairasi || 36 ||

Bereft of all titular honors, and freed from the fear of falling into poverty (and its consequent indignity);being devoid of every endeavour of rising, and remaining as poor and powerless among invidious enemies; and rather living in contemptible beggary among them, without the egoistic pride of mind and vanity of the body; if you can thus remain in utter destitution of all, you are then greater than the greatest.
