tejo viprasya vardhate
tat prasamyaty asantosad
yadrccha-labha-tustasya—who is satisfied by things obtained by the grace of God; tejah—the brilliant effulgence; viprasya—of a brahmana; vardhate—increases; tat—that (effulgence); prasamyati—is diminished; asantosat—because of dissatisfaction; ambhasa—by pouring of water; iva—as; asusuksanih—a fire.
A brahmana who is satisfied with whatever is providentially obtained is increasingly enlightened with spiritual power, but the spiritual potency of a dissatisfied brahmana decreases, as fire diminishes in potency when water is sprinkled upon it.
