दुर्मन्त्रान्नृपतिर्विनश्यति

दुर्मन्त्रान्नृपतिर्विनश्यति यतिः सङ्गात् सुतो लालसात्
विप्रोऽनध्ययनात् कुलं कुतनयाच्छीलं खलोपासनात्।
मैत्री चाप्रणयात् समृद्धिरनयात् स्नेहः प्रवासाश्रयात्
स्त्री गर्वादनवेक्षणादपि कृषिस्त्यागात् प्रमादाद्धनम्॥१८०॥
—मित्रभेदः नाम प्रथमे तन्त्रे देवशर्मा-परिव्राजक कथा ४
durmantrānnṛpatirvinaśyati yatiḥ saṅgāt suto lālasāt
vipro’nadhyayanāt kulaṁ kutanayācchīlaṁ khalopāsanāt|
maitrī cāpraṇayāt samṛddhiranayāt snehaḥ pravāsāśrayāt
strī garvādanavekṣaṇādapi kṛṣistyāgāt pramādāddhanam||180||
—mitrabhedaḥ nāma prathame tantre devaśarmā-parivrājaka kathā 4
A king is ruined by bad advice; an ascetic, by company; a child by pampering;
A brāhmaṇa by lack of learning; a noble family by evil sons; virtuous conduct by serving the base;
Friendship from want of regard; investment by mismanagement; affection from long absence/separation;
And a woman by pride; a farm, from neglect; wealth, through misdirected charity

खलः करोति दुर्वृत्तं

खलः करोति दुर्वृत्तं नूनं फलति साधुषु॥
दशाननोऽहरत्‌ सीतां बन्धनं तु महोदधेः॥
khalaḥ karoti durvṛttaṁ nūnaṁ phalati sādhuṣu||
daśānano’harat sītāṁ bandhanaṁ tu mahodadheḥ||
The wicked man does a bad deed and really it bears fruit among the good. The ten-faced one (RAvaNa) stole Sita, and it was the ocean that had to be restricted! (by Rama’s bridge)
