Sages with perfectly poised minds are freed from material nature
during their worldly life itself.
But what is the relation between an even mind and conquest of nature?
When the world itself is annihilated, what is the position of the Self?
Since God is immaculate and impartial, the minds of sages who have known Him are also freed from all blemishes and inequalities.
The sage becomes one with God.
This is the ultimate birthless state and it is acquired
when the ability to overcome the enemy,
the world of appearances, is fully developed.
This ability is there when the mind is controlled
when one has achieved the state of equality,
for the world of appearances, is but an extension of the mind.
