स योगी ब्रह्मनिर्वाणं ब्रह्मभूतोऽधिगच्छति।।5.24।।
।।5.24।। जो पुरुष अन्तरात्मा में ही सुख वाला आत्मा में ही आराम वाला तथा आत्मा में ही ज्ञान वाला है वह योगी ब्रह्मरूप बनकर ब्रह्मनिर्वाण अर्थात् परम मोक्ष को प्राप्त होता है।।
The qualities of a person possessing spiritual intelligence are delineated in the subsequent verses. The word antararamas means one who enjoys within denoting the atma or soul. True happiness is derived through the removal of all obstacles and impediments which obstruct access to the atma. Here it is alluded to as antar-jyotir or illuminated within. The resplendent Supreme Lord Krishna Himself is the source of all illumination indwelling as the internal light within of all beings as the atma. Even though all naturally created beings have this inner light only those of spiritual intelligence who are cognisant of it are referred to here. Those who are situated in samadhi or extreme internal meditation have no awareness of external matters. Even by seeing various activities in life they are unaffected within their consciousness and remain fixed and hence the pleasures which humans enjoy through the senses such as touching, hearing, tasting etc. do not affect such a person for the pleasure they derive is from the destruction of desires. In the Narada Purana it is stated that: Since Lord Krishna is self luminous His illumination abides internally and thus the cause of all internal happiness abides internally as well starting with perception of the Brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence. Now begins the summation. Abidance in the Brahman is factual otherwise there would be contradiction that one has to still reach the state of the Brahman. The internal happiness derived is due to one perceiving the Brahman within.
