Sanskrit Pearl of the day:
शीलभारवती कन्ता पुष्पभारवती लता |
अर्थभारवती वाणी भजते कामपि श्रियं ||
- रसगङ्गाधर

Transliteration:
sheelabhaaravatI kantaa puShpabhaaravatI lataa |
arthabhaaravatI vaaNI bhajate kaamapi shriyaM ||
- rasaga~ngaadhara

Meaning of the subhAShita:
A woman brimming with good character, a creeper filled with blooms, speech overflowing with purpose - who else does prosperity turn to!

Commentary:
Prosperity comes automatically where there is value.

A woman with integrity gets respect instantaneously. A creeper filled with blossoms attracts anyone's eye naturally. It doesn't have to do anything to draw one's attention. Similarly pleasant words and meaningful speech will appease everyone. In a place where these characteristics are present, prosperity will have no means to resist. Prosperity will give itself to such people.

Live purposeful lives to be prosperous!
