Verse 199. Not Anxious Among The Anxious

We the unfrenzied live
happily midst the frenzied,
among the frenzied humans
from frenzy dwell we free.

Explanation: Among the anxious men and women, who ceaselessly exert themselves in pursuit of worldly things. We, who do not make such a feverish effort to pursue the worldly, live happily. Among those who seek the worldly, among men who seek pleasure, we live without seeking pleasure.
