4.1 Truly the yogi feels no excitement even at being established in that state which all the Devas
from Indra down yearn for disconsolately.
4.2 He who has known That is untouched within by good deeds or bad, just as the sky is not
touched by smoke, however much it may appear to be.
4.3 Who can prevent the great-souled person who has known this whole world as himself from
living as he pleases?
4.4 Of all four categories of beings, from Brahma down to the last clump of grass, only the man
of knowledge is capable of eliminating desire and aversion.
4.5 Rare is the man who knows himself as the undivided Lord of the world, and no fear occurs
to him who knows this from anything.
4.6 Ashtavakra said: You are not bound by anything. What does a pure person like you need to
renounce? Putting the complex organism to rest, you can go to your rest.
