10. In like manner they enclose the Havirdhana on all sides with a view to that generation, thinking, “Quite secretly this generation shall be carried on!” for improper, indeed, is the generation which another sees: hence even when a husband and wife are seen, while carrying on intercourse, they run away from each other, for they give offence. Therefore to any one looking into the Havirdhana, except through the door, let him say, “Look not!” for it is as if he were seeing intercourse being carried on. Freely (one may look) through the door, for the door is made by the gods.
