When all desires that dwell in his heart (mind) are gone, then he, having been mortal, becomes immortal, and attains Brahman in this very body. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 4.4.7)

Though without riches, yet ever content; though helpless, yet very powerful, though not enjoying sense objects, yet eternally satisfied; though without an exemplar, yet looking upon all with an eye of equality — such is the jivanmukta. (Vivekachudamani, 543)

Though doing, yet inactive; though experiencing fruits of past actions, yet untouched by them; though possessed of a body, yet without identification with it; though limited, yet omnipresent is he. (Vivekachudamani, 544)

He is a jivanmukta who, although responsive to the spurs of love, hate, fear, and the like, is as pure in heart as the akasha, space. (Laghu Yoga Vasistha Ramayana, 5.93)

He, the conqueror of the three worlds, is indeed blessed, who is silent in silence, honourable among the virtuous, wise among the learned, poor amidst the indigent, blissful among the happy, contented amidst enjoyers, simple amidst fools, youthful amidst lasses, the orator amidst speakers, and the liberated amidst renouncers. (Jeevan Muktananda Lahari, 18)
