4. Next, austerity, charity, straightforwardness, nonviolence, and truthfulness—these are his dakṣiṇā.
Atha, next; yat tapaḥ, the austerity; dānam, charity; ārjavam, straightforwardness; ahiṃsā, non-violence; satyavacanam, truthfulness; iti tāḥ, all these [good qualities]; asya, of him [the person who regards his life as a sacrifice]; dakṣiṇāḥ, are the special fee paid after the sacrifice.
These qualities of austerity, charity, etc., are an additional gain, besides what you get by living a life as if it is a sacrifice. These moral qualities and the life you live both contribute much to the growth of your religious life.
