Chapter 2 Verse 70 of 72

| | आपूर्यमाणम् अचल-प्रतिष्ठम्́ | समुद्रम् आपः प्रविशंति यद्वत् | तद्वत् कामा यम्́ प्रविशंति सर्वॆ | स शांतिम् आप्नॊति न काम-कामी | |


A person who is not disturbed by the incessant flow of desires — that enter like rivers into the ocean, which is ever being filled but is always still — can alone achieve peace, and not the man who strives to satisfy such desires.
