Chapter 3 Verse 35 of 43

| | श्रॆयान् स्व-धर्मॊ विगुणः | पर-धर्मात् स्व्-अनुष्ठितात् | स्व-धर्मॆ निधनम्́ श्रॆयः | पर-धर्मॊ भयावहः | |


It is far better to discharge one's prescribed duties, even though faultily, than another's duties perfectly. Destruction in the course of performing one's own duty is better than engaging in another's duties, for to follow another's path is dangerous.
