Verse 23.30

बलेस्तु ब्रह्मणा दत्तो वरः प्रीतेन भारत ।
महायोगित्वमायुश्च कल्पस्य परिमाणतः ।
संग्रामे चाप्यजेयत्वं धर्मे चैव प्रधानताम् ।
त्रैलोक्यदर्शनं चापि प्राधान्यं प्रसवे तथा ।
बलस्याप्रतिमत्वं वै धर्मतत्त्वार्थदर्शनम् ।
चतुरो नियतान्वर्णांस्त्वं च स्थापयितेति ह ॥ ३० ॥

balestu brahmaṇā datto varaḥ prītena bhārata |
mahāyogitvamāyuśca kalpasya parimāṇataḥ |
saṃgrāme cāpyajeyatvaṃ dharme caiva pradhānatām |
trailokyadarśanaṃ cāpi prādhānyaṃ prasave tathā |
balasyāpratimatvaṃ vai dharmatattvārthadarśanam |
