7.2: (The merit of rearing) a Putra (Son) (a good son who will do good to the world) is equal to (the merit of digging) Ten Hradas (Lakes),
(And) (The merit of planting) a Druma (Tree) (and bringing it up) is equal to (the merit of rearing) Ten Putras (Sons) (because a Tree provides enormous benefits to mankind throughout its life, and most of it are unseen),
