Verse 2.6.1

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
तस्मात्प्राक्पौरुषाद्दैवं नान्यत्तत्प्रोज्झ्य दूरतः ।
साधुसंगमसच्छास्त्रैर्जीवमुत्तारयेद्बलात् ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
tasmātprākpauruṣāddaivaṃ nānyattatprojjhya dūrataḥ |
sādhusaṃgamasacchāstrairjīvamuttārayedbalāt || 1 ||

Vasishtha resumed saying said:—Now fate being no other than the result of our actions of the former state of our existence, it is possible to leave it at a distance, and to extricate one's self (from its fetters) by betaking himself to good company and study of moral Sastras.
