a hi jñānena sadṛśaṁ pavitram iha vidyate
svayaṁ yogasaṁsiddhaḥ kālenā ’tmani vindati (IV-38)
śraddhāvāṁl labhate jñānaṁ tatparaḥ saṁyatendriyaḥ
jñānaṁ labdhvā parāṁ śāntim acireṇā ’dhigacchati (IV-39)
IV/38. Verily, there is no purifier in this world like knowledge.
He who is perfected in yoga finds it in the self in time.
IV/39. The man who is full of faith, who is devoted to it, and
who has subdued the senses obtains knowledge. And, having
obtained the knowledge, he goes at once to the supreme peace.
