October 20th


Sanskrit Pearl of the day:
त्यज दुर्जनसंसर्गं भज साधुसमागमम्
कुरु पुण्यमहोरात्रं स्मर सर्वेश्वरं सदा

Transliteration:
tyaja durjanasaMsargaM bhaja saadhusamaagamam
kuru puNyamahoraatraM smara sarveshvaraM sadaa

Meaning of the subhAShita:
Leave the proximity of evil doers, resort to the company of the noble. Perform virtuous deeds day and night, remember the Lord all the time.

Commentary:
Leading a successful life doesn't mean having big bungalows and cars. Success is a relative term after all. If one can successfully avoid the company of evil, be in the company of good, do good deeds and surrender to Him, that is more than a success story!

Arrogance, that I am doing - is not very beneficial. Every deed performed with the thought that - it is an offering to the Lord - is the true vedantic way of living (not simply chanting series of mantras or performing various poojas).

pada vigrahaH:
त्यज दुर्जन संसर्गं भज साधु समागमम्
tyaja durjana saMsargaM bhaja saadhu samaagamam

कुरु पुण्यम् अहः रात्रं स्मर सर्व इश्वरं सदा
kuru puNyam ahaH raatraM smara sarva ishvaraM sadaa
