Verse 2.5.25

स च सच्छास्त्रसत्सङ्गसदाचारैर्निजं फलम् ।
ददातीति स्वभावोऽयमन्यथा नार्थसिद्धये ॥ २५ ॥

sa ca sacchāstrasatsaṅgasadācārairnijaṃ phalam |
dadātīti svabhāvo'yamanyathā nārthasiddhaye || 25 ||

And that it is by means of good conduct derived from best precepts and the company of the good, that one succeeds to his object, and a disposition that breaks loose of these (bounds), is sure to fall to the contrary (extreme of) ruin.
