<< Chapter 2 verse 70


vihāya kāmān yaḥ sarvān
pumāṁś carati niḥspṛhaḥ
nirmamo nirahaṅkāraḥ
sa śāntim adhigacchati

‘Whichsoever person, abandoning all desires, is free from longing; who is void of ‘my-ness’ and ‘I-ness’, well attains to peace.’

Kāmās=desires, or those things that are wished to be enjoyed, sound etc. Whichsoever person resigns these, and is free of craving therefor, and is free of ‘my-ness’ (nirmamah) therein, and free of ‘I-ness’ (nir-ahankāraḥ), i.e., free of mistaking the un-ātmic body for ātmā, he sees ātmā, and attains peace.

>> Chapter 2 verse 72
