Dear Patrick,

See the close variant found in Varāhamihira's Vivāhapaṭala (from TITUS):

Strophe: 72
Verse: ab    deśācāras tāvad ādau vicintyo deśe deśe yā sthiti saiva kāryā //
Verse: cd    lokadviṣṭāṃ paṇḍitā varjayanti daivajño 'pi lokamārgeṇa yāyāt /

My best,

Steven

Subject: [INDOLOGY] Query

I'd be grateful if someone can identify this verse ascribed to Varāhamihira:

deśācāras tāvad ādau vicintyaḥ
deśe deśe yā sthitis saiva kāryā |
lokavidviṣṭaṃ paṇḍitā varjayanti
daivajñā ye lokamārgeṇa yānti ||

I did not find it in the Bṛhatsaṃhitā.

Thank you.

Patrick
