As far as mental condition is concerned, the poet has especially mentioned two aspects of mind — fearlessness and broad-mindedness — which are required to attain real freedom.

Where the mind is without fear…
Where the mind is led forward by thee/ Into ever widening thought and action

According to the poet, qualities like self-dignity, knowledge, unity, rational thinking, truthfulness and hard work are also needed for achieving and enjoying true freedom.
