राज्ञि धर्मिणि धर्मिष्ठाः पापे पापाः समे समाः ।
राजानमनुवर्तन्ते यथा राजा तथा प्रजाः ॥

rājñi dharmiṇi dharmiṣṭhāḥ pāpe pāpāḥ same samāḥ |
rājānamanuvartante yathā rājā tathā prajāḥ ||

If the king is virtuous, then the subjects are also virtuous. If the king is sinful, then the subjects also become sinful. If he is mediocre, then the subjects are mediocre. The subjects follow the example of the king. In short, as is the king so are the subjects.

यदि राजा पुण्यात्मा है तो प्रजा भी वैसी ही होती है. यदि राजा पापी है तो प्रजा भी पापी. यदि वह सामान्य है तो प्रजा सामान्य. प्रजा के सामने राजा का उद्हारण होता है. और वो उसका अनुसरण करती है.
