Sanskrit quote

My most favourite one. But I am not going to translate it.

उद्यमेन ही सिद्ध्न्ति कार्याणी न मनोरथे
नहि सुप्तस्य सिन्घस्य प्रविशन्ति मुखे मृगा

May be I can translate it for your readers:

Parishram se hi karya safal hota hai.Mehnath kiye bagair phal ki apeksha nahi karni chaahiye.

Jaise soye huve sher ke muh mein doosrey jaanwar apne aap nahi pravesh karthey, waise hi bina mehnath kiye phal nahi miltha.

udhyamen hi sidhyanthi = parishram se hi phal ki praapthi hoti hai

Karyaani na manorathai = khaali phal ki apeksha karney se nahi

I have already explained the second line of the shloka above.

I'm curious as to what the symbol represent at the top of the page with the buddha inside? Thanx ; )'

Anonymous, it's the word Om written in the Hindi script Devnagari. The name for this symbol is Omkar and it's pronounced "aum". According to the Hindu mythology the universe was created out of this sound.

Most of the Sanskrit mantra's used for meditation and Vedic rituals start with the word "Om" e.g. "Om Namah Shivay" which is the chant to worship Lord Shiva, the destroyer.

"Om" is also used in itself for meditation to centre the mind and focus one's concentration. It is used in many meditation techniques that use breath-regulation to guide focus. The general practice is to say the word out loud as you exhale drawing out the sound "O" to last for the whole breath, then draw out the sound "m" with your mouth closed to let the vibrating sound resonate through your head and body.

There is much more to say about "Omkar" but I think this answers your question.

Thank you for your comment!

so the symbol means Om?

Sunil Goswami said...

Yes, it does but it's a very artistic representation of it, more of a drawing than writing.
