November 7th


Sanskrit Pearl of the day:
अन्य क्षेत्रे कृतं पापं पुण्य क्षेत्रे विनश्यति
पुण्य क्षेत्रे कृतं पापं वज्रलेपो भविष्यति

Transliteration:
anya kShetre kRutaM paapaM puNya kShetre vinashyati
puNya kShetre kRutaM paapaM vajralepo bhaviShyati

Meaning of the subhAShita:
A blunder committed in any other arena gets erased in the field of virtue. (Whereas) a folly committed in the field of virtue gets written on stone.

Commentary:
There is a respite for the sins committed in ignorance. Those sins get negated due to one's virtuous deeds. But a blunder committed in the name of virtue, becomes irreversible as if, engraved in stone. Those scars can never be erased.

One should beware, cheating in the name of virtue. There are no remedies or pardons for that!

pada vigrahaH:
अन्य क्षेत्रे कृतं पापं पुण्य क्षेत्रे विनश्यति

पुण्य क्षेत्रे कृतं पापं वज्र लेपः भविष्यति
puNya kShetre kRutaM paapaM vajra lepaH bhaviShyati
