Of the greatness of Wisdom !
Never stolen is Wisdom
Wisdom cannot be taxed either
Never sharable is Wisdom
Nor is She burdensome
She increases as one expends
The greatest Wealth is Wisdom!
( Na Chaura Haryam, na raja Haryam
Na Bhratru bhajyam, na cha bharakaree
Vyaye krithe vardhatha eve Nithyam
Vidyadhanam sarva dhanal pradhanam )
Never comparable is
Wealth to Wisdom
A king is respected in his own land
Whereas a scholar is respected everywhere !
(Vidvathwam cha nripathvam cha naiva thulyam kadachana
Swadeshe poojyathe rajah vidwan sarvatra poojyate )
- A Dante or a Goethe, an Aurobindo or a Tagore are extolled everywhere !
Humity is given by Wisdom
And by humility one succeeds
From success comes Prosperity
And from Prosperity Dharma & Bliss !
(Vidya dadathi vinayam vinayath yadi patratvam
Patrathvath dhanam apnothi dhanath dharma para sukham )
Beauty is great
And so is Character
Aristrocray is also ennobling
They are indeed riches !
But shineth they not without Wisdom
Hence the greatest ornament is Wisdom !
( Sundaropi susheelopi kuleenopi mahadhana
Shobhathe na vina vidyam Vidya Sarvasya Bhooshanam )
