- Reader of the sutras: Sw Ananda Teertha.
- The sutras
- Still it is given thee to fight and overcome thy foolish passions: learn thou to subdue them.
- Be sober; diligent, and chaste; avoid all wrath. In public or in secret ne'er permit thou any evil; and above all else respect thyself.
- Speak not nor act before thou hast reflected; be just.
- ... Remember that a power invincible ordains to die;
- ... That riches and the honours easily acquired, are easy thus to lose.
- As to the evils which destiny involves, judge them what they are; endure them all and strive, as much as thou art able, to modify the traits. The gods, to the most cruel, have not exposed the sage.
- Even as truth, does error have its lovers; with prudence the philosopher approves or blames; if error triumph, he departs and waits.
