Forgiveness adorns Knowledge


FORGIVENESS AND SACRIFICE

narasya aabharaNaM ruupaM
ruupasya aabharaNaM guNaH .
guNasya aabharaNaM jñaanam
jñaanasya aabharaNaM kShamaa .

The physical form adorns the man;
Virtue adorns the physical form;
Knowledge adorns virtue;
Rivers don’t drink their own water;
Trees don’t eat their own fruits;
Clouds truly don’t eat their own crops;
The welfare of others is the mark of excellence of the virtuous.

pibanti nadyaH svayameva na ambha
svayam na khaadanti phalaani vRukShaah .
na adanti sasyaM khalu vaarivaahaaH
paropakaaraya sataaM vibhuutayaH .
