Shikshapatri Shlock 161

The devout housewife shall never keep her body without an upper garment and shall not dress in such a way that may expose her navel, thighs or breast to the viewers. She shall not look at persons of mimical nature and never make acquaintance with a woman who knows no modesty.

અને પતિવ્રતા એવી જે સુવાસિની સ્‍ત્રીઓ તેમણે પોતાની નાભિ, સાથળ અને છાતી તેને બીજો પુરુષ દેખે એમ ન વર્તવું અને ઓઢયાના વસ્‍ત્ર વિના ઉઘાડે શરીરે ન રહેવું અને ભાંડભવાઇ જોવા ન જેવું અને નિર્લજજ એવી જે સ્‍ત્રઓ તથા સ્‍વૈરિણી, કામિની અને પુંશ્ર્વલી એવી જે સ્‍ત્રીઓ તેમનો સંગ ન કરવો.
