Book 1

LESSON 11

   

 

 

   

1. Having taught the Veda, the teacher then exhorts the pupil.

   

 

 

   

2. Speak the true. Follow Dharma.

   

 

 

   

3. From study swerve thou not. Having offered dear wealth to the teacher, cut thou not the progeny's line. From the true it will not do to swerve, nor from Dharma, nor from welfare. Neither will it do to swerve from well-being, nor from study and teaching, nor from duties to Devas and Pitris.

   

 

 

   

4. Treat thy mother as a God; as a God treat thou thy father; as a God shalt thou treat they teacher; thy guests as Gods shalt thou treat.

   

 

 

   

5. What works are free from fault, they should be resorted to, not others.

   

 

 

   

6. What are good works of ours, they should be done, not others.

   

 

 

   

7. Whatever brahmanas are better than ourselves, in their sitting it will not do for thee to breathe.

   

 

 

   

8. With reverence should gifts be made, never with irreverence should a gift be made. With liberality should gifts be made, with modesty should gifts be made. With fear should a gift be given, in friendliness should a gift be given.

   

 

 

   

9. Now if to thee a doubt as to a deed, or a doubt as to conduct, should occur, as the brahmanas there -- who are thoughtful, zealous, well-versed, not hard (at heart), desirous of Dharma -- would act in such matters, so there shalt thou act.

   

 

 

   

10. Now as to the accused: as the brahmanas there -- who are thoughtful, zealous, well-versed, not hard (at heart), desirous of Dharma -- would act in such matters, so there shalt thou act.

   

 

 

   
11. This is the direction; this the advice; this the secret of Vedas; this the command; thus shall devotion be, and thus verily (all) this shalt thou observe.
