Life’s purpose isn’t to fill one’s own belly

  • यस्मिञ्जीवति जीवन्ति बहवो स तु जीवति।
    काकोऽपि किं न कुरुते चञ्च्वा स्वोदरपूरणम्॥
  • yasmiñjīvati jīvanti bahavo sa tu jīvati|
    kāko’pi kiṁ na kurute cañcvā svodarapūraṇam||
  • He alone lives, by whose life many other benefit. After all, even a crow works to fill its own belly.
  • – Subhāṣita-ratna-bhāṇḍāgāraḥ
