A generous man free from any kind of attachment
« on: March 28, 2012, 10:21:58 AM »
त्वचं मांसं वीवं यदपि ददुरस्थीनि पृथिवीं
श्रियं रत्नाधीशं त्रिदशतरूमैरावतमपि ।
तदेतत्प्रत्येकं मिलितमपि नालं तुलयितुं
मनस्कारोपितां स्थिरमधुर कल्योक्तिकणिकां ॥


A generous man free from any kind of attachment will gladly part with their 

Skin, Flesh, Life, Backbone (Shouldering burden), Earth, Money, gems, gifted tree, elephants; Either of these individually or collectively will not equal even a fraction of the sweet state of mind in which the donor feels and knows that what he has given is after all nothing!

(Sri Vedanta Desikan)
