ŚB 11.11.14


यस्य स्युर्वीतसङ्कल्पा: प्राणेन्द्रियमनोधियाम् ।
वृत्तय: स विनिर्मुक्तो देहस्थोऽपि हि तद्गुणै: ॥ १४ ॥


yasya syur vīta-saṅkalpāḥ
vṛttayaḥ sa vinirmukto
deha-stho ’pi hi tad-guṇaiḥ


yasya — of whom; syuḥ — they are; vīta — freed from; saṅkalpāḥ — material desire; prāṇa — of the vital energy; indriya — the senses; manaḥ — the mind; dhiyām — and of intelligence; vṛttayaḥ — the functions; saḥ — such a person; vinirmuktaḥ — completely freed; deha — in the body; sthaḥ — situated; api — even though; hi — certainly; tat — of the body; guṇaiḥ — from all of the qualities.


A person is considered to be completely liberated from the gross and subtle material bodies when all the functions of his vital energy, senses, mind and intelligence are performed without material desire. Such a person, although situated within the body, is not entangled.


The material body and mind are subject to lamentation, illusion, hunger, lust, greed, insanity, frustration, etc., but one who remains active in this world without attachment is considered vinirmukta, or completely liberated. The vital energy, senses, mind and intelligence are purified when engaged in the devotional service of Lord Kṛṣṇa, as confirmed throughout Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.
