    यदि हि स्त्री न रोचेत पुमांसं न प्रमोदयेत् । अप्रमोदात् पुनः पुंसः प्रजनं न प्रवर्तते ॥ ६१ ॥

    For if the wife is not radiant with beauty, she will not attract her husband; but if she has no attractions for him, no children will be born.

    स्त्रियां तु रोचमानायां सर्वं तद् रोचते कुलम् । तस्यां त्वरोचमानायां सर्वमेव न रोचते ॥ ६२ ॥

    If the wife is radiant with beauty, the whole house is bright; but if she is destitute of beauty, all will appear dismal.

    कुविवाहैः क्रियालोपैर्वेदानध्ययनेन च । कुलान्यकुलतां यान्ति ब्राह्मणातिक्रमेण च ॥ ६३ ॥

    By low marriages, by omitting (the performance of) sacred rites, by neglecting the study of the Veda, and by irreverence towards Brahmanas, (great) families sink low.

    शिल्पेन व्यवहारेण शूद्रापत्यैश्च केवलैः । गोभिरश्वैश्च यानैश्च कृष्या राजोपसेवया ॥ ६४ ॥

    By (practising) handicrafts, by pecuniary transactions, by (begetting) children on Sudra females only, by (trading in) cows, horses, and carriages, by (the pursuit of) agriculture and by taking service under a king,

  5. 65

    अयाज्ययाजनैश्चैव नास्तिक्येन च कर्मणाम् । कुलान्याशु विनश्यन्ति यानि हीनानि मन्त्रतः ॥ ६५ ॥

    By sacrificing for men unworthy to offer sacrifices and by denying (the future rewards for good) works, families, deficient in the (knowledge of the) Veda, quickly perish.
