दद्यात्पत्न्यै चरो: शेषं सुप्रजास्त्वं सुसौभगम् ॥ २४ ॥
vāg-yataḥ saha bandhubhiḥ
dadyāt patnyai caroḥ śeṣaṁ
ācāryam — the ācārya; agrataḥ — first of all; kṛtvā — receiving properly; vāk-yataḥ — controlling speech; saha — with; bandhubhiḥ — friends and relatives; dadyāt — he should give; patnyai — to the wife; caroḥ — of the oblation of sweetrice; śeṣam — the remnant; su-prajāstvam — which insures good progeny; su-saubhagam — which insures good fortune.
Before taking his meal, the husband must first seat the ācārya comfortably, and, along with his relatives and friends, should control his speech and offer prasāda to the guru. Then the wife should eat the remnants of the oblation of sweetrice cooked with ghee. Eating the remnants insures a learned, devoted son and all good fortune.
