శుచిః - Holy and purifying

శుచిః భూమిగతం తొయం శుచిః నారీ పతివ్రతా |
శుచిః క్షేమకరో రాజా సంతోషీ బ్రాహ్మణః శుచిః ||

शुचि र्भूमिगतं तोयं शुचि र्नारी पतिव्रता ।
शुचिः क्षेमकरो राजा सन्तोषी ब्राह्मणः शुचिः ॥

Holy and purifying is the water underground. Woman, devoted to her husband is holy.
King, who protects is a purifier; and a contended & happy brahmaNa is holy.
