‘That is called Bodily Austerity (tapas) which consists in the worship of the Devas, the Twice-born, the Teachers and wise men; in cleanliness, rectitude, chastity and harmless-ness’
Worship (or reverent treatment rendered by the body) to the Gods, the Twice-born (=the deivas or the Brāhmaṇas, the spiritual classes), the Teachers (=the gurus) and other men, who are ripe in (spiritual) wisdom.
Śaucham = Cleanliness of person by ablutions in holy waters, etc.
Ārjavam = Conduct in keeping with the intent (of mind).
Brahma-charyam = Chastity or the absence of lustful looking at women etc.,
Ahimsā = Absence of injury to creatures (harm lessness).
These constitute Bodily Austerity.
