Shikshapatri Shlock 75

Never shall ever divulge secrets of other persons anywhere and to anyone. Others shall be treated as they deserve. This rule shall not be violated in the name of equality.

અને કોઇની પણ જે ગૃહ્યવર્તા તે તો કોઇ ઠેકાણે પણ પ્રકાશ કરવી જ નહિ અને જે જીવનું જેવી રીતે સન્‍માન કરવું ઘટતું હોય તેનું તેવી રીતે જ સન્‍માન કરવું પણ સમદ્રષ્ટિએ કરીને એ મર્યાદાનું ઉલ્‍લંઘન કરવું નહિ.
