Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.49.18
dharmeṇa pālayann urvīḿ
prajāḥ śīlena rañjayan
vartamānaḥ samaḥ sveṣu
śreyaḥ kīrtim avāpsyasi
dharmeṇa — religiously; pālayan — protecting; urvīm — the earth; prajāḥ — the citizens; śīlena — by good character; rañjayan — delighting; vartamānaḥ — remaining; samaḥ — equally disposed; sveṣu — to your relatives; śreyaḥ — perfection; kīrtim — glory; avāpsyasi — you will achieve.
By religiously protecting the earth, delighting your subjects with your noble character, and treating all your relatives equally, you will surely achieve success and glory.
Akrūra told Dhṛtarāṣṭra that even though he had usurped the throne, if he now ruled according to the principles of dharma and behaved properly, he could be successful.
