लोका: सपाला यच्छन्ति सर्वे बलिमतन्द्रिता: ॥ २० ॥
sarve tad-vaśagā ime
lokāḥ sapālā yacchanti
sarve balim atandritāḥ
If the king’s mind is fully controlled, all his family members and governmental officers are subordinate to him. His provincial governors present taxes on time, without resistance, and what to speak of lesser servants?
Aṅgirā Ṛṣi asked the King whether his mind was also under control. This is most essential for happiness.
