संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

शीलं परं भूषणम्‌

ऐश्वरस्य विभूषणं सुजनता शौर्यस्य वाक्संयमः
ज्ञानस्योपशमः श्रुतस्य विनयो वित्तस्य पात्रे व्ययः।
अक्रोधः तपसः क्षमा प्रभवितुः धर्मस्य निर्व्याजता
सर्वेषामपि सर्वकारणमिदं शीलं परं भूषणम्‌॥
The ornament of greatness is nobility; of courage, restraint over speech;
Of knowledge, calmness; of learning, obedience/humility ; of wealth, wise spending;
Control of one’s anger, of penance; patience/forgiveness, of efficiency; of dharma, straight forwardness;
The base for all the [above] qualities is good conduct/character, [which] is the greatest of all ornaments.
