PEOPLE IN BOOKS & LIFE ONE forgives friends because s/he still want them in their life. Of all the things one wear, expression is the most important especially in presence of their pals. The knowledge which is residing in the book and in the wealth which is in possession of some other person is of no use at all. At the time of it's need they will not be of any help. People are generally like books: Some deceive you with their cover and others surprise you with their content. A friend, even without many good qualities, seemed to better than an enemy with good qualities. After all enemy is enemy. Whatever one can do or dream, the person should begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it then & there. The Real education is in one's attitude & behaviour with others. It defines person's whole personality, no matter how qualified s/he is. पुस्तकस्था तु या विद्या परहस्तगतं धनम् |कार्यकाले समुत्पन्ने न सा विद्या न तद् धनम् || Among kith & kin, among friends among lovers among husband & wife, Communication is the lifeline of their relation. when they stop communicating, they start losing their valuable relations. क: काल: कानि मित्राणि को देश: को व्ययागमौ | कस्याहं का च मे शक्ति: इति चिन्त्यं मुहुर्मुहु: || "How is situation around me (i.e. is it favourable or not)? who are (my) friends? how is condition in the country? what are the things for and against me (or what do I have and what I don't have)? who am I? what are my strengths?" one should always ponder over these fundamental questions. One must be always alert and consider all this prior to any action. A lone flower blossoms for its purpose; not looking around for admirers. Stay true to your purpose, admirers will find their way to you. The gentle foot prints of Kindness that we leave behind Makes a Life time of Soft imprints in the hearts of others that will never wash away. गुणवान् वा परजन: स्वजनो निर्गुणोपि वा निर्गुण: स्वजन: श्रेयान् य: पर: पर एव च || A man who makes trouble for others is also making trouble for himself. Ability of a person is not how well he has planned; but how he STANDS & FACES the challenges, when everything he planned has gone wrong. The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass - it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. FAITH ... It doesn't make things easy it makes them possible. प्रदोषे दीपकश्चंद्र: प्रभाते दीपको रवि:। त्रैलोक्ये दीपको धर्म: सुपुत्र: कुलदीपक:॥ Moon illumines the evening. Sun illumines the morning. Dharma (Righteousness) illumines all the three worlds and a capable son illumines all ancestors. We always work for a better tomorrow; but when tomorrow comes, instead of enjoying, we again think of a better tomorrow. So, let’s have a better today. One should Never let a WIN get to head , or a loss to HEART. स हि भवति दरिद्रो यस्य तॄष्णा विशाला। मनसि च परितुष्टे कोर्थवान् को दरिद्रा:॥ The person with vast desires is definitely poor. For the one with satisfied mind, there is no distinction between rich and poor. Relation is not a collection of People. But, it is a selection of Hearts. We need to put in all efforts to hold them for a life-time. When we learn to manage our emotions long enough to stop and shift our attention to the quieter message of the heart, we can gain a wider perspective on any situation, often saving ourselves from hurt, frustration and pain. Sacrifice is greater than love, Character is greater than beauty, Humanity is greater than wealth, But nothing is greater than keeping relations alive..!! चन्दनं शीतलं लोके चंदनादपि चंद्रमा: | चन्द्रचन्दनयोर्मध्ये शीतला साधुसंगत: || sandalwood is pleasant (cool), moon (or moon light) is more pleasant than sandal. (but) company of a good person (sAdhu) is pleasant then both moon and sandal. "What one has, many can have...but what one is, no one can be.” If one wouldn't write it and sign it, better s/he doesn't say it. Simple principle of Life:- - Never think I am nothing - Never think I am everything - But always think I am something And I can achieve anything. नात्युच्चशिखरो मेरुर्नातिनीचं रसातलम् व्यवसायद्वितीयानां नात्यपारो महोदधि:|| For a person who is seconded by activities (i.e. for a person who depends on his own efforts), peak of a mountain is not very high (is not hard to climb), bottom of earth (centre of earth) is not very deep and an ocean is not difficult to cross. Doubt & Faith...both are states of mind. Doubt creates the darkest moments in our finest hour; while Faith brings finest moments in our darkest hour. The really happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery when on a detour. If we succeed in cheating someone, do not think he is a fool. Rather realize that he trusted us more than we deserved. विद्या विवादाय धनं मदाय शक्ति: परेषां परिपीडनाय | खलस्य साधोर्विपरीतमेतज्ज्ञानाय दानाय च रक्षणाय || A bad person uses his knowledge for (empty) argumentations, his wealth for egotistic actions, and his power for harming others. The opposite is true concerning a good person: He uses his knowledge, wealth, and power for providing to others knowledge, financial help, and protection, respectively. "One knows that Whenever he or she points finger blaming someone; three of her or his own fingers point back towards him or her. When pure sincerity forms within, it is outwardly realized in other people's hearts. "Respect" is the most important element of our "Personality". It is like an investment, whatever we give to others, it will return us with Profit. न प्रहॄष्यति सन्माने नापमाने च कुप्यति। न क्रुद्ध: परूषं ब्रूयात् स वै साधूत्तम: स्मॄत:॥ Those, who do not become happy by honor and do not get angry by dishonor, do not use harsh words, even in anger, are said to be greatest among saints.
