The touch of a child

  • एवं च भाषते लोकश्चन्दनं किल शीतलम्।
    पुत्रगात्रस्य संस्पर्शश्चन्दनादतिरिच्यते॥
  • evaṁ ca bhāṣate lokaścandanaṁ kila śītalam|
    putragātrasya saṁsparśaścandanādatiricyate||
  • The world glorifies sandalwood (paste) to be pleasing to the touch. The touch of a son in reality, outdoes sandal-paste in its pleasantness.
