Beware – The world fawns over your wealth; not you!

  • तानीन्द्रियाण्यविकलानि तदेव नाम
    सा बुद्धिरप्रतिहता वचनं तदेव।
    अर्थोष्मणा विरहितः पुरुषः स एव
    त्वन्यः क्षणेन भवतीति विचित्रमेतत्॥
  • tānīndriyāṇyavikalāni tadeva nāma
    sā buddhirapratihatā vacanaṁ tadeva|
    arthoṣmaṇā virahitaḥ puruṣaḥ sa eva
    tvanyaḥ kṣaṇena bhavatīti vicitrametat||
  • The five senses are the same, the name is the same, the intellect remains as it was, and the voice the same. Yet, a man who is divorced of wealth becomes a stranger in a trice in this world, is indeed strange!
