य उद्यतमनादृत्य कीनाशमभियाचते ।
क्षीयते तद्यशः स्फीतं मानश्चावज्ञया हतः ॥
ya udyatam anAdRutya kInAsham abhi yAchate ।
kShIyate tad yashaH sphItam mAnashca avajnayaa hataH ॥
If a person asks for help, it must be from someone who is an expert in the field. If you ask for help from a layman on a specialized subject, you will definitely fail. Your fame will be destroyed and pride hurt by ridicule.
