He practices secretly and is always a renouncer. (Being) a householder, he observes the Rule. Solitary, he has a wife (sapatnīka) and, well hidden, he eats the sacrificial pap. One who has abandoned strife, (being) tranquil and austere, he attains (the liberated state of) the Skyfarer. He has obtained initiation and, consecrated, he desires success in mantra. [...]”.
