12 -13 -14. Making his mind one-pointed with his thoughts and senses motionless, let him enjoin (his mind and the self) for equanimity and for purifying the self. Bolding the body, the head and the neck erect and still, concentrating on the tip of his nose, without diverting his attention around, with hannony of his self, fearless and establishing himself in wisdom (of Brahman) with subdued mind and inteUigence, attuned to Me, let him abide in Me.

15. Enjoining himself in this manner, the equanimous one with sub dued mind attains to peace subsequent to the supreme state of renunciation, which abides in Me.
