Verse 105.6

अलंकृतो वापि चरेय धर्मं क्षान्तो दान्तो नियतो ब्रह्मचारी ।
सर्वेहि भूतेहि निवार्य दण्डं सो ब्राह्मणो सो श्रमणो स भिक्षुः ॥ ६ ॥

alaṃkṛto vāpi careya dharmaṃ kṣānto dānto niyato brahmacārī |
sarvehi bhūtehi nivārya daṇḍaṃ so brāhmaṇo so śramaṇo sa bhikṣuḥ || 6 ||

Though he be brightly arrayed, if he live the life of dharma, calm, tamed, restrained, living the brahma-life, forbearing to use violence against all creatures, then is he a brahman, a recluse, a monk. (6)
