<< Chapter 14 verse 22


udāsīna-vad āsīno
guṇair yo na vicālyate
guṇā vartanta ity evaṁ
yo ’vatiṣṭhati neṅgate

‘Sitting unconcerned, whoso is by qualities not ruffled, whoso calmly reflects: “the qualities revolve,” is not disturbed.’

Like one unconcerned (udāsīnavat), because his delight consists in ātma-vision, and therefore he is indifferent to anything else.

Whoso is never agitated by desires and aversions which the qualities beget; and who keeps silent by reflecting: ‘It is natural for the qualities to parade themselves as lucidity (prakāśa) etc.,’ is never disturbed i.e., does not allow himself to be impelled to act as the qualities would provoke him so to act.
