Verse 7.31.24

नेह द्रष्टा न भोक्तास्ति नाऽस्तिता न च नास्तिता ।
यथास्थितमिदं शान्तमेकं स्पन्दि सदाब्धिवत् ॥ २४ ॥

neha draṣṭā na bhoktāsti nā'stitā na ca nāstitā |
yathāsthitamidaṃ śāntamekaṃ spandi sadābdhivat || 24 ||

In your forgetfulness of the world you will find nothing to be seen or enjoyed in it, and nothing of its entity or nullity whatsoever; it is as well as it is all quiet and still as the calm and unruffled ocean for ever.
