TRANSLATION

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.
