काव्यशास्त्रविनोदेन कालो गच्छति धीमतम्।
व्यसनेन च मूर्खाणां निद्रया कलहेन वा॥
kāvyaśāstravinodena kālo gacchati dhīmatam|
vyasanena ca mūrkhāṇāṁ nidrayā kalahena vā||
Intelligent people (dhīmān) spend their time studying the literature and shastras.
The dumb people (mūrkhāḥ) spend (waste) their time in sleeping and quarrels!

  1. Hi Karthik and other Scholars in this forum,

    I remember a snippet of a wonderful slokam from my school days. It is about the purpose of the various body parts which according to the author should be used in the service of the Lord Krishna and he goes on to explain how they should used. I was wondering if you can point me to the author, book this is part of and also the reminder of the slokam. Apologies for the errors while typing this in English.

    Bhahu dhvandhva(??) smarchaya achutya kathaaha srotra dhvatvam srunu
    Krishnam lokaya lochana dhvaya harehe gachangri yugmalayam
    gigra grana mukunda paada thulasim moorgan namadhokshagam

    Thanks in advance
