Sanskrit Maxims
« on: April 21, 2012, 06:22:25 PM »
Dear i recently i found a book of sanskrit maxims that were very well used in the daily lives during the vedic times. i shall reproduce them here, some interesting ones:


The maxim of the necklace One day a lady was anxiously engaged in search for her necklace, though in fact she had it then round her neck. When she enquired of another person about it, she was asked only to feel her neck. It is used to denote the useless attempt of a person to obtain a thing from somewhere else though in fact he is in possession of it, only he is not aware of it.

The Self remains unknown, only thus :)

Remain quietly in the Self.

Dear Nagaraj,

Kantabharanam, dasaman - 10 th man, -- these stories have been told often by Sri Bhagavan.

Arunachala Siva.
