बाल्ये गतेऽविरतकल्पितकेलिलोले दोर्दण्डमण्डितवयःप्रभृति प्रयत्नात् ।

Let a man after passing his childhood, and getting rid of its false and idle playfulness and when he has attained the age of youthful vigour, apply himself diligently to the company of wise men, and to the cultivation of his understanding by a knowledge of the Sastras and their meanings, and by scanning well his own faults and qualities.
