संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

न देवा दण्डमादाय रक्षन्ति

न देवा दण्डमादाय रक्षन्ति पशुपालवत्।
यं तु रक्षितुमिच्छन्ति बुद्‍ध्या संविभजन्ति तम्॥
na devā daṇḍamādāya rakṣanti paśupālavat|
yaṁ tu rakṣitumicchanti buddhyā saṁvibhajanti tam||
The Devās do not take a stick and protect [people] like a cowherd.
Those they want to protect, they bestow upon him intelligence [to manage his own safety].
