kaccit tvaá¹ brÄhmaá¹aá¹ bÄlaá¹
gÄá¹ vá¹ddhaá¹ rogiá¹aá¹ striyam
kaccit - whether; tvam - yourself; brÄhmaá¹am - the brÄhmaá¹as; bÄlam - the child; gÄm - the cow; vá¹ddham - old; rogiá¹am - the diseased; striyam - the woman; Åaraá¹a-upasá¹tam - having approached for protection; sattvam - any living being; na - whether; atyÄká¹£Ä«á¸¥ - not given shelter; Åaraá¹a-pradaá¸¥ - deserving protection.
The brÄhmaá¹as, who are always engaged in researching knowledge for the societyâs welfare work, both materially and spiritually, deserve the protection of the king in all respects. Similarly, the children of the state, the cow, the diseased person, the woman and the old man specifically require the protection of the state or a ká¹£atriya king. If such living beings do not get protection by the ká¹£atriya, or the royal order, or by the state, it is certainly shameful for the ká¹£atriya or the state. If such things had actually happened to Arjuna, MahÄrÄja Yudhiá¹£á¹hira was anxious to know about these discrepancies.
