<< Chapter 4 verse 38


śraddhāvāḻ labhate jñānaṁ
tat-paraḥ saṁyatendriyaḥ
jñānaṁ labdhvā parāṁ śāntim

‘Whoso is full of faith, is intent thereon, and is of subdued senses, he attains wisdom. Wisdom attained, soon after, attains he to Supreme Peace.'[1. Cp. With XVIII-31.]

Receiving knowledge by instruction, (see verse 34 ante), growing more and more devoted and attentive as knowledge (or wisdom) ripenes, and becoming more and more abstracted from external matters towards which the senses pull, one soon reaches the summit of wisdom. After attaining wisdom, he attains Supreme Peace, viz Nirvāṇa (Spiritual Bliss).
