<< Chapter 5 verse 23


yo ’ntaḥ-sukho ’ntar-ārāmas
tathāntar-jyotir eva yaḥ
sa yogī brahma-nirvāṇaṁ
brahma-bhūto ’dhigacchati

‘Who finds joy within, enjoyment within, and similarly light within alone, he, the brahma-like yogi, attains brahma-bliss.’

Antas-sukhaḥ is he who feels the desire for the happy ātma-experience, after abrogating the pleasures of external objects.

Antar-ārāmaḥ is he who finds his ātma his pleasure-garden. That is to say, his ātma has the capacity, by its inherent qualities, to enhance his (spiritual happiness).

Similarly, he whose sole light or illumination is the wisdom concerning ātma, is brahma-like yogi. And he attains brahma-nirvāṇa, i.e., bliss that comes from ātma-enjoyment.
