Sutra 2.36: satya pratisthayam kriya phala ashrayatvam
- satya = truthfulness, honesty
- pranisthayam = firmly installed/established
- kriya = action
- phala = fruition
- ashrayatvam = resulting in,
Translated loosely into English;
Firm establishment in truthfulness results in fruition of (truthful) action.
When the advanced student is truthful in all thought, manifestations of action and speech will also be truthful. It is important that when being honest, we respect others, to be mindful not to hurt others (ahimsa), to bring goodwill to all beings and work towards liberation.
