ज्ञानस्य आभरणं क्षमा

नरस्य आभरणं रूपं रूपस्य आभरणं गुणः।
गुणस्य आभरणं ज्ञानं ज्ञानस्य आभरणं क्षमा॥
narasya ābharaṇaṁ rūpaṁ rūpasya ābharaṇaṁ guṇaḥ|
guṇasya ābharaṇaṁ jñānaṁ jñānasya ābharaṇaṁ kṣamā||
The ornament of man is beauty, the ornament of beauty is guṇās (~good qualitites).
Knowledge adorns good qualities, and forgiveness is the ornament of knowledge.

अतृणे पतितो वह्निः

अतृणे पतितो वह्निः स्वयमेवोपशाम्यति।
अक्षमावान् परं दोषैरात्मानं चैव योजयेत्॥
atṛṇe patito vahniḥ svayamevopaśāmyati|
akṣamāvān paraṁ doṣairātmānaṁ caiva yojayet||
Fire fallen on a grass-less [land] extinguishes itself.
A man without patience/forgiveness brings trouble unto himself.

कोकिलानां स्वरो रूपं

कोकिलानां स्वरो रूपं पातिव्रत्यं तु योषिताम्‌।
विद्या रूपं विरूपाणां क्षमा रूपं तपस्विनाम्‌॥
kokilānāṁ svaro rūpaṁ pātivratyaṁ tu yoṣitām |
vidyā rūpaṁ virūpāṇāṁ kṣamā rūpaṁ tapasvinām ||
The voice is the beauty of cuckoos, character (devotedness to husband) is the beauty of women,
Learning is the beauty of the deformed and patience/forgiveness is the beauty of ascetics.

क्षमा-महत्वं

क्षमा शस्त्रं करे यस्य दुर्जनः किं करिष्यति।
अतृणे पतितो वह्निः स्वयमेवोपशाम्यति॥
kṣamā śastraṁ kare yasya durjanaḥ kiṁ kariṣyati |
atṛṇe patito vahniḥ svayamevopaśāmyati ||

"What can a wicked person do to someone who has the weapon of forgiveness in his hands?
Fire fallen on ground without any grass extinguishes by itself."

क्षमा बलमशक्तानाम् शक्तानाम् भूषणम् क्षमा।
क्षमा वशीकृते लोके क्षमया किं न सिध्यति।॥
kṣamā balamaśaktānām śaktānām bhūṣaṇam kṣamā |
kṣamā vaśīkṛte loke kṣamayā kiṁ na sidhyati | ||

"Forgiveness is the strength of the weak. Forgiveness is the ornament of the mighty.
If the world can be conquered by forgiveness, what cannot be accomplished by forgiveness?"
