Finding fault in the noble – A clear sign of delusion

  • पश्यति परेषु दोषान्नसतोऽपि जनः सतोऽपि नैव गुणान्।
    विपरीतमिदं स्वस्मिन् महिमा मोहाञ्जनस्यैषः॥
  • paśyati pareṣu doṣānnasato’pi janaḥ sato’pi naiva guṇān|
    viparītamidaṁ svasmin mahimā mohāñjanasyaiṣaḥ||
  • Incredible is the collyrium called māyā that causes one to find fault in the faultless and none in the fault-ridden vile. It is the very same collyrium that causes one to see virtues alone in ourselves and no faults, what so ever!
