by Jahnabi Barooah

करे श्लाघ्यस्त्याग: शिरसि गुरुपादप्रणयिता
मुखे सत्या वाणी विजयि भुजयोर्वीर्यमतुलम् ।
हृदि स्वच्छा वृत्ति: श्रुतमधिगतं च श्रवणयो-
र्विनाप्यैश्वर्येण प्रकृतिमहतां मण्डनमिदम् ।।५३।।
नीतिशतके

generosity with money,
respect for elders,
truthful speech,
matchless strength,
exemplary conduct,
and spiritual wisdom;
these ornament the
hands, heads, lips, arms,
chests, and ears of those who are
innately distinguished
even without affluence. ||53||
