श्रेयान्स्वधर्मो विगुणः

श्रेयान्स्वधर्मो विगुणः परधर्मात्स्वनुष्ठितात्।
स्वभावनियतं कर्म कुर्वन्नाप्नोति किल्बिषम्॥
— भगवद्गीता १८-४७
śreyānsvadharmo viguṇaḥ paradharmātsvanuṣṭhitāt|
svabhāvaniyataṁ karma kurvannāpnoti kilbiṣam||
— bhagavadgītā 18-47

Better is one's own duty, though devoid-of-merit, than the duty of another well performed;
For performing the duty ordained by his own nature man does not incur sin.
