Kaupīnapañcakam

The dispassionate one wearing a piece of loin cloth — who is roaming in the thoughts of Vedānta, who is satisfied by a meagre portion of begged-food, who is meditating in his inner-self without grief — is indeed lucky.[1]

The dispassionate one wearing a piece of loin cloth — who is sitting at the roots of a tree, who is eating unmeasured (meagre) food with his two hands, and who is disregarding wealth like a patched-cloth — is indeed lucky.[2]

The dispassionate one wearing a piece of loin cloth — who is elating and satisfying in his own thoughts, who is keeping quiet and curbing his sensual desires, and who is roaming day and night in the thoughts of Brahman — is indeed lucky.[3]

The dispassionate one wearing a piece of loin cloth — who is witnessing his body change, who is seeing self as the Ātman, and who is not remembering either the end, or the middle, or the outside one — is indeed lucky.[4]

The dispassionate one wearing a piece of loin cloth — who is reciting the Brahma syllable, who is is existing with the thought ‘I am Brahman’, and who is wandering in directions for alms — is indeed lucky.[5]
