Lovers of the world, shun it

Random pick for today, from Astavakra Gita:

वाग्मिप्राज्ञामहोद्योगं जनं मूकजडालसं |
करोति तत्त्वबोधोयमतस्त्यक्तो बुभुक्षुभिः
(15:3)

This knowledge of Truth
turns an eloquent, wise and active man
mute empty and inert
Lovers of the world therefore shun it.
(Bart Marshall)

…. and thus, it continues to throw some light on everything around me..

On a side note, I am liking Google Transliterate – Sanskrit, more than any other language I used it in!

On a second side note, Happy Independence Day!! and here is an article on the “unsung heroines” of Independence struggle, that appeared in “The Hindu” yesterday.
