Indian Wisdom and Sayings
of Bhartrihari originally in Sanskrit
Those who possess not wisdom, contrition, generosity,
knowledge, good temper, virtue, or uprightness, may take the
shape of men while they live among us, but they travel through
life nevertheless like beasts that encumber the ground.
Whatever fate has prescribed for each man in this life,
that shall be his portion, great or small. Rain pours from the
cloud day by day, filling all things, but only a few tiny
drops may fall on the flower.
When it happens that sages, whose words are enriched with
beautiful thoughts from the shastras, and who convey their
sacred learning to their pupils, are compelled to dwell in
poverty, then the princes of whom they are subjects must be
accused of foolishness, and these sages, however poor they may
be, are the real wiser rulers.
Despise not the wise men who have reached a knowledge of the
Truth. They cannot be influenced by money, for wealth to them
is but as grass.
A king is brought to ruin by evil counsellors; a child by
being spoilt; good manners by bad habits; modesty by alcoholic

Day by day a portion of our life glides away from us with the
rising and setting of the sun, and we think our business of so
much importance that we can pay no attention to flight of
Time never grows old, but our lives pass away.
Ignorance will lead the moth to fly into the flame of the
candle, and the fish may nibble at a piece of meat fastened to
a hook without being aware of the bait prepared for them; but
we men who know thoroughly the many traps and snares that
fortune has set for us nevertheless refuse to give up our
desires. Ah, in what a forest of error do we wander!
Innumerable rulers have quarrelled with one another, and still
continue to quarrel, for the possession of worldly enjoyments,
and kings still retain a feeling of pride for their dominions.
The foolishness of those who own the earth leads them to
manifest unmistakable delight in the acquirement of the most
minute particle, while they ought, on the contrary, to exhibit
the most profound sorrow.
