जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

यो यस्य हृद्यो न हि तस्य दूरः

गिरौ कलापि गगने पयोधौ लक्ष्यान्तरेऽर्कश्च जलेषु पद्मम्‌।
इन्दुर्द्विलक्षे कुमुदस्य बन्धुर्यो यस्य हृद्यो न हि तस्य दूरः॥
girau kalāpi gagane payodhau lakṣyāntare’rkaśca jaleṣu padmam |
indurdvilakṣe kumudasya bandhuryo yasya hṛdyo na hi tasya dūraḥ ||
The peacock is in the mountain and the clouds in the sky; the sun is at the distance of a thousand thousand yojanas and the lotus is in the water,
The moon is two hundred thousand yojanas away from its friend, the lily; what is dear to
one’s heart is not far away.
