संतुष्यत्युत्तमः स्तुत्या धनेन महताऽधमः ।
प्रसीदंति जपैर्देवा बलिर्भूतविग्रहाः ॥
santuShyati uttamaH stutyA dhanena mahatA adhamaH ।
prasIdanti japaiH devA baliH bhUta vigrahaaH ॥
The Virtuous people are pleased by mere good words. A lowly person is mighty pleased with money. Gods are pleased with penance, while the demons are pleased by offering sacrifices.
