न हायनैर्नपलितैः न वित्तेन न बंधुभिः ।
ॠषयश्चक्रिरे धर्मं योऽनूचानः स नो महान् ॥
Dharma is not to elope from everyday life. Neither it is what ever old people say. Dharma is not run by money. Dharma is not what your relatives tell. Dharma is practicing and living by the moral code of life (just as the sages lived). He who studies the scriptures (about dharma) will attain greatness.
