ऐश्वरस्य विभूषणं सुजनता

ऐश्वरस्य विभूषणं सुजनता शौर्यस्य वाक्संयमः
ज्ञानस्योपशमः श्रुतस्य विनयो वित्तस्य पात्रे व्ययः।
अक्रोधः तपसः क्षमा प्रभवितुः धर्मस्य निर्व्याजता
सर्वेषामपि सर्वकारणमिदं शीलं परं भूषणम्‌॥
aiśvarasya vibhūṣaṇaṁ sujanatā śauryasya vāksaṁyamaḥ
jñānasyopaśamaḥ śrutasya vinayo vittasya pātre vyayaḥ |
akrodhaḥ tapasaḥ kṣamā prabhavituḥ dharmasya nirvyājatā
sarveṣāmapi sarvakāraṇamidaṁ śīlaṁ paraṁ bhūṣaṇam ||
Nobility is the ornament of greatness; restraint over speech, of courage;
Calmness, of knowledge; obedience, of learning; wise spending of wealth;
Control of one’s anger, of penance; patience, of efficiency, straight-forwardness, of dharma;
Good character is the base for all the above qualities and is the greatest ornament of all.
