चिदहं गगनादच्छा नित्यानन्ता निरामया ।
किं जीवितं मे किं वापि मरणं वा सुखासुखे ॥ १९ ॥

cidahaṃ gaganādacchā nityānantā nirāmayā |
kiṃ jīvitaṃ me kiṃ vāpi maraṇaṃ vā sukhāsukhe || 19 ||

If I am the intellectual soul, undecaying and everlasting, and as transparent as the open air; say then what is life or death to me, and what means my happiness or misery in any state.
