यावन्न दृष्टो राजासौ तावन्मन्त्री न जीयते ।
मन्त्री च यावन्न जितस्तावद्राजा न दृश्यते ॥ ६ ॥

yāvanna dṛṣṭo rājāsau tāvanmantrī na jīyate |
mantrī ca yāvanna jitastāvadrājā na dṛśyate || 6 ||

As long as one does not approach to the presence of his king, he cannot fail to serve the minister; and so long as he is employed in service of the minister, he cannot come to the sight of his king.
