काव्यशास्त्रविनोदेन

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!

महतां मण्डनमिदम्‌

करे श्लाघ्यस्त्यागः शिरसि गुरुपादप्रणयिता
मुखे सत्या वाणी विजयि भुजयोः वीर्यमतुलम्‌।
हृदि स्वच्छवृत्ति श्रुतमधिगतं च श्रवणयोः।
विनाऽप्यैश्वर्येण प्रकृति महतां मण्डनमिदम्‌॥
kare ślāghyastyāgaḥ śirasi gurupādapraṇayitā
mukhe satyā vāṇī vijayi bhujayoḥ vīryamatulam |
hṛdi svacchavṛtti śrutamadhigataṁ ca śravaṇayoḥ |
vinā’pyaiśvaryeṇa prakṛti mahatāṁ maṇḍanamidam ||
Ornaments of great people are entirely different. They are all natural.
Praise-worthy charity, for the hand; submission at the feet of the elders, for the head;
Truthful speech, for the mouth; matchless ever victorious strength, for the arms;
Purity of thought, for the heart and acquired knowledge of the holy scriptures, for the ears.
These are the worthy ornaments of the great by nature (despite the absence of worldly riches.)

अपि स्थाणुवदासीत

अपि स्थाणुवदासीत शुष्यन् परिगतः क्षुधा।
न त्वेवानात्मसंपन्नाद् वृत्तिमीहेत पण्डितः।
api sthāṇuvadāsīta śuṣyan parigataḥ kṣudhā|
na tvevānātmasaṁpannād vṛttimīheta paṇḍitaḥ|
A wise man should rather remain inactive like a branchless trunk, and wither away with oppressive hunger, than seek a means of maintenance from the worthless.

अपि सम्पूर्णतायुक्तैः

अपि सम्पूर्णतायुक्तैः कर्तव्याः सुहृदो बुधैः।
नदीशः परिपूर्णोऽपि चन्द्रोदयमपेक्षते॥
api sampūrṇatāyuktaiḥ kartavyāḥ suhṛdo budhaiḥ|
nadīśaḥ paripūrṇo’pi candrodayamapekṣate||
Wise men should get friends, even if they live in abundance
The lord of rivers [the ocean], although filled, impatiently waits for the rise of the moon.
