the ultimate HUMAN.
(Edited Quotations from The Upanishads)
Has renounced all selfish attachments and observes no rites and ceremonies. Has only minimum possessions, and lives his life for the welfare of all.
Has no staff nor tuft nor sacred thread. He faces heat and cold, pleasure and pain, honor and dishonor with equal calm. He is not affected by calumny, pride, jealousy, status, joy, or sorrow, greed, anger, or infatuation, excitement, egoism or other goads; for We are neither body nor mind...

He offers no ancestral oblations; he praises nobody, blames nobody, is never dependent on anyone.
Has no need to repeat the mantram, no more need to practice meditation. The world of change and changeless Reality are one to him, for he sees all in God. (Paramahamsa Up. 1,2,4, pp. 245-246)

( Edited Quotations from The Dhammapada) (Paraphrased: Freed by full realization and at peace, the mind of such a HUMAN is at peace, and his speech and action peaceful. Has no need for faith who knows the uncreated, who has cut off rebirth, who has destroyed any opportunity for good or evil, and cast away all desire. He is indeed the ultimate HUMAN
