Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 71
vihaya kaman yah sarvan
pumams carati nihsprhah
sa santim adhigacchati
vihaya--giving up; kaman--material desires for sense gratification; yah--who; sarvan--all; puman--a person; carati--lives; nihsprhah--desireless; nirmamah--without a sense of proprietorship; nirahankarah--without false ego; sah--he; santim--perfect peace; adhigacchati--attains.
A person who has given up all desires for sense gratification, who lives free from desires, who has given up all sense of proprietorship and is devoid of false ego--he alone can attain real peace.
Srila Prabhupada explains in his purport; Real desirelessness is desire for the satisfaction of Krsna, not an artificial attempt to abolish desires. The living entity cannot be desireless or senseless, but he does have to change the quality of the desires.
