संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

नास्ति सत्यात् परो धर्मः

सत्येन सूर्यस्तपति सत्येनाग्निः प्रदीप्यते।
सत्येन मारुतो वाति सर्वं सत्ये प्रतिष्ठितम्॥
अश्वमेध सहस्रं च सत्यं च तुलया धृतम्।
अश्वमेधसहस्राद्धि सत्यमेव विशिष्यते॥
—महाभारते अनुशासन पर्वः
satyena sūryastapati satyenāgniḥ pradīpyate|
satyena māruto vāti sarvaṁ satye pratiṣṭhitam||
aśvamedha sahasraṁ ca satyaṁ ca tulayā dhṛtam |
aśvamedhasahasrāddhi satyameva viśiṣyate||
—mahābhārate anuśāsana parvaḥ

"The Sun burns by Truth, by truth does the Fire give Light.
By Truth does the Wind blow, Everything is rooted in Truth".
"When a thousand Ashvamedhas are compared with Truth with a balance,
More than the thousand Ashvamedhas, Truth weighs greater.

नास्ति सत्यात् परो धर्मः।
nāsti satyāt paro dharmaḥ|
There is no greater dharma than truth.
