The great Soul remains inflexibly poised and undisturbed,
Whether in the presence of a pleasant lady,
Or observing the approach of his own death.
He is truly Free.
The true Sage sees no difference
Between happiness and misery,
Man and woman, adversity and success,
Everything is seen to be the same, from a deeper perspective.
In the Sage there is neither aggressiveness nor mercy,
Arrogance nor humility, anxiety nor wonder,
His worldly life has been exhausted,
Through arduous effort spanning eons and eons,
He has successfully transcended His role as a person.
