भारतीयर्षि-संप्रोक्तान् इहामुत्रार्थसाधकान् ।
योऽङ्गीकरोति सश्रद्धं सत्सिद्धान्तान् सनातनान् ॥ 1॥
माहात्म्यभिर्दिव्यशीलैः काले काले प्रवर्त्तितान् ।
संप्रदायानाद्रीयते यः सर्वान् पारमार्थिकान् ॥2॥
यत्र कुत्रापि जातोऽसौ यः कोऽपि वास्तु जन्मना ।
सच्छीलोदारचारितः सोऽत्र हिन्दुरिति स्मृतः ॥3॥
Those who believe in the words of Rshis of Bhaaratavarsha and accepts gladly the deeds in this birth(इह जन्म) and after-birth (परजन्म), one who accepts the fundamental principles of Eternal Righteous living as determined by our holy men according to their different ways of righteuousness and have adopted one of them with regard to all is HINDU, wherever he/she may be born and whatever be birth he/she is.
