संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

अज्ञान-तिमिरान्धस्य

अज्ञान-तिमिरान्धस्य ज्ञानाञ्जन-शलाकया।
चक्षुरून्मीलितं येन तस्मै श्रीगुरवे नमः॥
ajñāna-timirāndhasya jñānāñjana-śalākayā |
cakṣurūnmīlitaṁ yena tasmai śrīgurave namaḥ||
Prostration to that Guru, who, through the collyrium of Knowledge, opens the eye of those blinded by the gloom of ignorance.

    could you perhaps translate this phrase for me? i am having difficulty finding the english translation and am curious, i saw it on a forum somewhere but the person did not translate it.

    थमान्वितः पुरुषॊ धर्मशीलॊ; भूतानि चात्मानम इवानुपश्येत
    गरीयसः पूजयेथ आत्मशक्त्या; सत्येन शीलेन सुखं नरेन्थ्र

    This verse appears to be from parashara gita. See:
    http://sanskritdocuments.org/doc_giitaa/paaraasharagiitaa.itx
    (Verse 281-23)

    I wouldn’t risk translating it, unless I knew the context. It would be good if you can hunt down some text of Mahabharata with translation; this appears to be in Shanti parva… will post if I find something..
