काकचेष्टा बकध्यानम्

काकचेष्टा बकध्यानं श्वाननिद्राल्पभोजनम्।
स्वाध्यायः संयमश्च छात्राणां लक्षणानि षट्॥
kākaceṣṭā bakadhyānaṁ śvānanidrālpabhojanam |
svādhyāyaḥ saṁyamaśca chātrāṇāṁ lakṣaṇāni ṣaṭ ||

Intentiveness akin to a crow’s, concentration like that of a crane, light sleep like that of a dog’s, the consumption of moderate food, application to one’s studies and self control. These are the six signs of a good student.

  1. ఏతాదృశ శ్లోకమియం –

    సుఖార్థీ చేత్ త్యజేత్ విద్యాం
    విద్యార్థీ చేత్ త్యజేత్ సుఖం
    సుఖార్థిన: కుతో విద్యా!?
    కుతో విద్యార్థిన: సుఖం ! ?

    If you want comfort stop learning
    If you want to be a student leave comfort
    why education for them who are seeking comfort!?
    why comfort for a student !?
