English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

16.2 Non-injury is abstaining from injury to others. Truth is communication by words of what one knows for certain and what is conducive to the good of others. Freedom from anger is the absence in oneself of the mental state, which, if permitted, leads to injury to others. Renunciation is the abandonment of everything that is contrary to the good of the self. Tranillity is practice of controlling the senses from their propensity towards sense-objects. Not-slandering others means refraining oneself from speech that may cause evil to others. Compassion to all beings means ones incapacity to stand the suffering of others. Aloluptvam means freedom from desire for sense-objects. Gentleness means absence of harshness, and being worthy of associating with the good. Sense of shame is shrinking from doing what should not be done. Acapalam means being unattracted by objects enjoyable by the senses even when they are at hand.
