सदारः सहितोऽग्निभिः

रथमानय मे शीघ्रं गच्छाम्यद्यैव मा चिरम्।
वसिष्ठस्त्वग्रतो यातु सदारः सहितोऽग्निभिः॥१-६-३७॥
rathamānaya me śīghraṃ gacchāmyadyaiva mā ciram।
vasiṣṭhastvagrato yātu sadāraḥ sahito’gnibhiḥ॥1-6-37॥

“Get my chariot at once Do not delay. I shall start today itself.” Vasiṣṭha, the royal preceptor, must be at the head of the procession along with the mothers or Rama and his wife and all the fires.

This shloka emphasises the pre-eminent position of the preceptor, as well as the sacrificial fires of the Grihasthāshrama. No travel was even made without these fires! It was common practice, till a few decades ago, to carefully preserve the fires from vivāha till the end!

The results are dependent on one's action, the intellect follows the action.
Even then, one acting after proper deliberation should use proper intellect."

Be not instrumental in making your actions bear fruit, nor let your attachment be to inaction."
