||Freedom from malice, forbearance, peace of mind, contentment, pleasant speech, renunciation of desire and anger, virtuous conduct and actions regulated according to the ordinances of holy writ, constitute the perfect way of the virtuous.
||Freedom from every hope and desire is felicity.
||Freedom from attachment, emancipation from desire, contentment, tranquillity, truth, self-restraint, forgiveness, and universal compassion are the qualities that have now I come to me.
||Freedom from hope is high felicity.
||Freedom from acts, again, is incapable of being attained in this world for even a moment.
||Freedom from the idea of meum, freedom from egoism, freedom from expectations, looking on all with an equal eye, and freedom from desire, these constitute the eternal religion of the good.
