tina mudrāra bhoṭa gāya, mādhukarī grāsa

dharma-hāni haya, loka kare upahāsa"

tina mudrāra bhoṭa — a woolen blanket costing three gold coins; gāya — on the body; mādhukarī grāsa — and practicing the mādhukarī system; dharma-hāni haya — that is a religious discrepancy; loka kare upahāsa — people will joke.

TRANSLATION

"It is contradictory to practice mādhukarī and at the same time wear a valuable blanket. One loses his spiritual strength by doing this, and one will also become an object of jokes."
