कोऽरुक् कोऽरुक् कोऽरुक् हितभुग् मितभुग् जितेन्द्रियो नियतः।
कोऽरुक् कोऽरुक् कोऽरुक् शतपदगामी च वामशायी च॥
(Dhanvantari had gone to the forest to collect medicinal herbs when a bird on a tree above cried thrice) “Who is free from ailment?” (Dhanvantari assumed the bird was addressing the question to him, so replied) (He) who eats nutritious food, who eats moderately, who has his senses under control, who is disciplined. (The bird cried thrice yet again to which he further replied) (He) who walks a hundred steps and sleeps on his left side.
