- श्रुतेन श्रोत्रियो भवति तपसा विन्दते महत्।
धृत्या द्वितीयवान्भवति बुद्धिमान् वृद्धसेवया॥
- śrutena śrotriyo bhavati tapasā vindate mahat|
dhṛtyā dvitīyavān bhavati buddhimān vṛddhasevayā||
- Man becomes learned from a studious study of the scriptures. He achieves great things through arduous penance. He attains an eternal companion in developing fortitude.
Man becomes wise however, only by service to the elderly.
- – Yakṣapraśna, 29
