Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of Vaiśeṣika sūtra 6.1.8:
तस्य समभिव्याहारतो दोषः ॥ ६.१.८ ॥
tasya samabhivyāhārato doṣaḥ || 6.1.8 ||
8. Demerit results from association with him.—232.
Commentary: The Upaskāra of Śaṅkara Miśra:
He says that not only non-existence of fruit accrues from entertaining an impure Brāhmaṇa invited at a Śrāddha, but sin also accrues.
[Read sūtra 6.1.8 above]
The meaning is that ‘doṣa’ [doṣaḥ], i.e., sin, accrues, ‘Samabhivyāhā-rataḥ,’ i.e., from association, characterised as eating in the same row, sleeping in company, reading in company, etc., with a Brāhmaṇa engaged in forbidden acts.—8.
