ସତ୍ସଙ୍ଗତିଃ କଥୟ କିଂ ନ କରୋତି ପୁଂସାମ୍ ॥

What does not good association do for men? It removes the dulness
of their intellects, it sprinkles truth in their speech, it brings
the highest honors for them, expels sin from them, it purifies
their minds and spreads their fame in all the directions.

May Lord Vishnu (the bearer of LakShmi), the destroyer of the armies
of the demons, be the bestower of prosperity on us. The Lord,
at the sight of whose man-lion (Narasimha) form multitudes of men,
women, gods, demons and the denizens of the netherworld were
frightened, and who tore as under the chest of the king of
demons Hiranyakasipa with the thunder-bolt like sharp nails.

A king (leader), though he looks after the welfare of the people,
does not
shine without the help of his subordinates. Though the sun is
radiant, it does
not shine without its rays.

I seek the refuge of the lord of monkies(Hanuman) who is the son
of mAta anjana, valorous, the destroyer of seetAdevi’s afflictions,

Knowledge enhances the beauty of a person.
It is a well-protected hidden treasure, which brings prosperity,
fame and happiness. Knowledge is the preceptor of preceptors.
Knowledge substitutes a friend in foreign travels.
It is the supreme god. Only knowledge but not wealth, is respected
by the rulers. A person devoid of knowledge is a beast.

ପ୍ରାୟେଣାଧମ ମଧ୍ୟମୋତ୍ତମ ଜୁଷାଂ ଏଵଂଵିଧା ଵୃତ୍ତୟଃ ॥

When a drop of water falls on heated iron, it disappears
immediately, whereas
if it happens to fall upon a lotus leaf, it appears like a pearl and
the same
thing turns into a pearl if it chances to drop into the mouth of an

Thus the company (bad, mediocre or good) in which a person moves and
determine his future.

To convince an ignorant person is easy. It is even easier to
convince a
learned person.
But even Lord Brahma cannot explain and convince a person who has
limited knowledge but thinks high of himself.

Ornaments of great people are entirely different. They are all
Praise-worthy charity- for the hand; submission at the feet of the
elders- for
the head; truthful speech- for the mouth; matchless ever victorious
for the arms; purity of thought- for the heart and acquired
knowledge of the
holy scriptures- for the ears. (These are the worthy ornaments of
the great by
nature despite the absence of worldly riches.)

Nobility is the ornament of greatness, restraint over speech -of
courage, calmness -of knowledge, obedience- of learning, wise
spending -of wealth, control of one’s anger- of penance,
patience of efficiency, straight forwardness- of dharma.
Good conduct is the base for all the above qualities and is
the greatest ornament of all.

I salute the great lord vishnu – whose appearance is serene, rests
on the snake Adishesha, possesses lotus in the navel, lord of
gods, sustains the universe, infinite as the space, bluish in
appearance, handsome, lord of goddess LakShmi, possesses lotus
like eyes, attainable to the great sages through eternal
knowledge, eliminates the fear of worldly attachments and
the lord of all the worlds.

The serpent is cruel, a wicked man is cruel. But a wicked man is
cruel more than a serpent. A serpent can be controlled by
spells and medicines but by what can a wicked man be controlled?

The spring is the youth of trees, wealth is the youth of men,
beauty is the youth of women and intelligence is
the youth of the young.

He, who looks upon other men’s wives as his mothers, other men’s
money as clods of earth and considers all creatures as

A gem is trodden under foot and a glass is worn on the head. Even
in that state a glass is glass and a gem is a gem.

The foot should be placed on a spot seen to be clean, water should
be drunk after having been strained through a cloth, a word
should be spoken with truth and a work should be done with consideration.

The learning of men is not a cause of greatness but the luck. What
learning has a stone? But it obtains divinity.

The protection of the mean should not be sought but the protection

by Lord shiva enquired about Garuda’s health.

A man of good qualities is pleased with another good man, but not
pleased by the bad man. The bee goes from the forest to the
lotus, but not so the frog, though it lives with lotus (in the same pond.)

ଅଟନେନ ମହାରଣ୍ୟେ ସୁପନ୍ଥାଃ ଜାୟତେ ଶନୈଃ ।

The right path will gradually be found in a forest by wandering in it.
Similarly wisdom too will be gradually acquired by study of the holy
scriptures, as a mountain is slowly crossed.

A wise man deals with merits and demerits as Lord Shiva dealt with
the moon and the poison. He praises the former with his
head and keeps the latter in his throat.

Who befriends, he is a relative; who supports, he is a father; he
is a friend, in whom there is confidence and she is wife,
in whom there is pleasure.

ପରୋପଦେଶସମୟେ ସର୍ଵ ଏଵ ହି ପଣ୍ଡିତାଃ ।

In teaching others, all are wise; but in their own actions even
munis are not wise.

The virtuous man appreciates virtue but not the bad man and the
strong man appreciates the strength but not the weak. The
cuckoo feels the influence of the spring but not the crow
and the elephant values the strength of the lion but not the mouse.

କ୍ଷଣଂ ଵିତ୍ତଂ କ୍ଷଣଂ ଚିତ୍ତଂ କ୍ଷଣଂ ଜୀଵିତମାଵୟୋଃ ।

Wealth is unstable, mind is unstable, our life too is not
permanent. As Yama has no pity one should do good works quickly.

ଵୈଶ୍ୟାନାଂ ଧାନ୍ୟ ଧନତଃ ଶୂଦ୍ରାଣାମେଵ ଜନ୍ମତଃ ॥

Among brahmins, seniority is considered by knowledge, among
kShatriyas – by valour, among vaishyAs – by grain and
money and among sudras – by birth.

ଶଶି ଦିଵାକରୟୋଃ ଗ୍ରହପୀଡନଂ ଗଜ ଭୁଜଙ୍ଗମୟୋରପି ବନ୍ଧନମ୍ ।

The seizure of the sun and the moon by grahas, the capture of
elephants and snakes and the poverty of the wise – indicates
that the fate is powerful.

ଵାଣିଜ୍ୟେ ଵସତି ଲକ୍ଷ୍ମୀଃ ତଦର୍ଧଂ କୃଷି କର୍ମଣି ।

Fortune as LakShmi dwells in trade, she is half in agriculture,
half in serving the government, and not at all in begging.

Courage in trouble, forbearance in prosperity, eloquence in the
assembly, valour in battle, eagerness in gaining fame,
attention to the holy scriptures, all these are natural to great ones.

Man obtains wealth he is to obtain, even god is not able to
prevent it. Therefore I neither grieve nor surprised as
the writing on the forehead will never fail.

The king must answer for his country’s sin, the priest for the
king’s sin, the
husband for his wife’s sin and the guru for the disciple’s sin.

The peacock is in the mountain and the clouds in the sky, the sun
is at the distance of a thousand thousand yojanas and the
lotus is in the water, the moon is two hundred thousand
yojanas away from its friend, the lily. what is dear to
one.s heart is not far away.

It is possible to prevent fire with water, heat of the sun with an
umbrella, a strong elephant with a sharp goad, a bull or ass
with a stick, a disease with medicines, and poison by the
use of various spells. For every thing there is a remedy
provided in the scriptures but there is no remedy for a fool.

A mother does not curse her son, the earth suffers no harm, a good
man does no violence and god does not destroy his own creation.

The rivers do not drink their own water, the trees do not eat
their own sweet
fruits, the clouds do not eat the crops and the riches of the good
are used
for the benefit of others.

ପରୋଽପି ହିତଵାନ୍ ବନ୍ଧୁର୍ବନ୍ଧୁରପ୍ୟହିତଃ ପରଃ ।
ଅହିତୋ ଦେହଜୋ ଵ୍ୟାଧିର୍ହିତମାରଣ୍ୟମୌଷଧମ୍ ॥

A stranger interested in our welfare is a relative and a relative
not interested in our welfare is a stranger. Disease is hurtful,
though born in our body and medicine is beneficial, though
produced in a forest.

ଜୟୋଽସ୍ତୁ ପାଣ୍ଡୁପୁତ୍ରାଣାଂ ୟେଷାଂ ପକ୍ଷେ ଜନାର୍ଦନଃ ।

Success be to the sons of Pandu (Pandavas), on whose side is
JanArdana. Where Krishna is, there is justice and where
justice is, there is victory.

Boundless indeed is the science of language, but life is short and
obstacles are numerous. Hence take what is good and leave
what is worthless, as geese/swan take milk from the midst of water.
