I have a sloka which is from yOga vAshiSTa which runs as:
dEshakramENa dhanaM alpavigarhaNEna tEnAnga sAdhujanamarjaya mAnapUrvaM
tat sangamOttha viSayAdyavahELanEna samyagvichAra vibhavEna tavAta lAbhaH //
The rough meaning according to my translation is:
By considering the limitations & circumstances of dEsha and kAla (ie., considering the dEsha, kAla niyamAs etc.), if the grihastha (householder) one earns money with "swalpa dOsha" and thereby approaching the sAdhus & sants, if engages in their services and undergoes the shravaNa by participating in satsangha, also gets the vairAgya. Thus, equipped with vairAgya, the grihastha engages in tattva-vichAra and achieves "Atma-lAbha".
I need the exact reference of the above sloka from yOga vAshiSTa and also need further
explanation to the pada-prayOga "alpa-vigarhaNa".
Thanks in advance...
