  • What does it say?
The exact verse numbers of this passage are not researchable on the Internet. However, the line you have mentioned comes from the poet Bhartruhari and describes the six different criteria needed to be considered as an ideal wife.

  • Hindu Mythology
This particular passage is part of Sanskrit literature which is a big part of the Hindu religion, an area that is important in Indian culture. Within these writings they tend to express a number of various traditions as well as portray the lives of different sects of people from a number of regions. Individuals do not necessarily take these readings at face value but do regard them as having symbolic significance, interpreting them in different ways.

  • Sanskrit Epics
The Sanskrit epics are a number of poems that allude to the main aspect of Indian culture, focusing on hero worship. The epics are split into the Ramayana and Mahbharata and they are also known as Itihasa and Mahakavya which are translated as history and great compositions. In addition to the Sanskrit epics, there is a collection of verses regarding the Hindu gods and goddesses. This is known as the Puranas and it follows in the same tradition as the epics.

Found this mentioned in"pedda balashiksha" on page no. 246.
Lord krishna felt that Devi Rukmini has all the six desirable characteristis of an ideal wife.
This appears in the "Rukmini kalyanam".

This is written by Kaalidasa in one of his sanskrit books, most probably "Abhignyana Shakunthalam"
