Verse 7.31.38

शान्तं निरस्तभयमानविषादलोभमोहात्मदेहमननेन्द्रियचित्तजाड्यम् ।
त्यक्त्वाहमक्षयमपास्तसमस्तभेदं निर्वाणमेकमजमासितुमेव युक्तम् ॥ ३८ ॥

śāntaṃ nirastabhayamānaviṣādalobhamohātmadehamananendriyacittajāḍyam |
tyaktvāhamakṣayamapāstasamastabhedaṃ nirvāṇamekamajamāsitumeva yuktam || 38 ||

It is therefore proper for you to remain entirely extinct in the external one and tranquil as the Divine spirit by giving up all your fear and pride, your griefs and sorrows, and your covetousness and all errors besides. You must forsake with these the dullness of your heart and mind, as also of your body and all its members, together with the sense of your egoism and the distinctions of things from the one perfect unity.
