Subhasitani -- Good Speech


वज्रादपि कठोराणि
मृदूनि कुसुमादपि
लोकोक्तराणां चेतांसि

mRidani kusumadapi
lokoktaraNaam chetansi
ko hi vijnaatumarhati

mahataamekarupataa

आरभ्यविघ्न विहताः विरमन्ति मद्याः
विघ्नै पुनः पुनरपि प्रतिहन्यमानाः
प्रारभ्यामुत्तमजनाः न परित्यजन्ति

praarbhyate na khalu vighna bhayena niicheeha

नाभिषेको न संस्कारः
सिंहस्य क्रियते वने
विक्रमार्जित सत्वस्य
स्वयमेव मृगेंद्रता

svameva mRigendrataa

आलस्यं ही मनुष्याणां
शरीरस्थो महान् रिपूः

कुर्वाणो नावसीदती

aalasyan hi manusyanam
sarirasto mahaan ripu
nastudhyam samo bandhu
kurvaNao naavasiidati
