संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

सत्सङ्गतिः कथय किं न करोति पुंसाम्

जाड्यं धियो हरति सिञ्चति वाचि सत्यम्
मानोन्नतिं दिशति पापमपाकरोति।
चेतः प्रसादयति दिक्षु तनोति कीर्तिम्
सत्सङ्गतिः कथय किं न करोति पुंसाम्॥
jāḍyaṁ dhiyo harati siñcati vāci satyam
mānonnatiṁ diśati pāpamapākaroti|
cetaḥ prasādayati dikṣu tanoti kīrtim
satsaṅgatiḥ kathaya kiṁ na karoti puṁsām||

"[It] removes the inertia of one's intellect, nurtures truth in the speech;
Enhances prestige, expiates the sins;
Comforts the conscience, spreads fame in all directions.
Say! what [good] is there which the company of good does not bring to men!"
