जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

वृथा वृष्टिः समुद्रेषु

वृथा वृष्टिः समुद्रेषु वृथा तृप्तेषु भोजनम्।
वृथा दानं धनाढ्येषु वृथा दीपो दिवाऽपि च॥
vṛthā vṛṣṭiḥ samudreṣu vṛthā tṛpteṣu bhojanam|
vṛthā dānaṁ dhanāḍhyeṣu vṛthā dīpo divā’pi ca||
Waste is rain, over the oceans; for one who’s hunger is satiated, food is of no use.
Donations to those who are rich is a waste; so also is lighting a lamp during the day a waste!
