Verse 6.83.16

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
अत्यन्तकृपणः कश्चित्किराटो धनधान्यवान् ।
अस्ति विन्ध्याटवीकक्षे कुटुम्बी ब्राह्मणो यथा ॥ १६ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
atyantakṛpaṇaḥ kaścitkirāṭo dhanadhānyavān |
asti vindhyāṭavīkakṣe kuṭumbī brāhmaṇo yathā || 16 ||

Vasishtha replied:—Hear me Rama, relate to you a tale to this effect. There lived an old Kirata of yore, who was miserly in his conduct as he was rich in his possessions of wealth and grains. He dwelt with his family by the side of the Vindhyan woods, as a poor Brahman lives apart from his kith and kin.
