  • शोको नाशयते धैर्यं शोको नाशयते श्रुतम् ।
    शोको नाशयते सर्वं नास्ति शोकोसमो रिपुः ॥
    Grief destroys one’s courage. It destroys one’s learning. It destroys one’s everything. There is no enemy greater than grief. [Context: These are the words of Kausalya. She had spoken harsh words to Dasratha for sending Rama to the forests. She repents and says that she spoke thus because of her intense grief on Rama being sent to the forests]

  • देशे देशे कलत्राणि देशे देशे च बान्धवाः ।
    तं तु देशं न पश्यामि यत्र भ्राता सहोदरः ॥
    One may have wives and relatives in every country but one cannot have a brother like Lakshmana in every place. [Context: Rama’s words of sorrow when Lakshmana becomes unconscious in the battle field struck by the spear of Indrajit.]
  • श्रीमन् कृपाजलनिधे कृतसर्वलोक सर्वज्ञ शक्त नतवत्सल सर्वशेषिन् । स्वामिन् सुशील सुलभाश्रित पारिजात श्रीवेङ्कटेशचरणौ शरणं प्रपद्ये ॥ Oh Lord of maha Lakshmi! You are an ocean of mercy. You pervade all universes. You are the witness to all things happenings and You are aware of everything. You are omnipotent. You are the ultimate and residual entity of everything. You come to the rescue of those, who call out to You in their states of utter helplessness. You serve as the boon-granting PaarijAthA tree to those, who surrender themselves at Your sacred feet.
  • सत्यं वद । धर्मं चर । सत्यान्न प्रमदितव्यम् । धर्मान्न प्रमदितव्यम् । कुशलान्न प्रमदितव्यम् । भूत्यै न प्रमदितव्यम् । स्वाध्यायप्रवचनाभ्यां न प्रमदितव्यम् । देव पितृकार्याभ्यां न प्रमदितव्यम् । मातृदेवो भव । पितृदेवो भव । अतिथिदेवो भव । आचार्यदेवो भव । Always speak the truth and follow the dharma (righteousness). Hold on to truth and dharma. Hold on to welfare activities. Acquire wealth legitimately. Hold on to self-study and teaching. Hold on to the worship and rituals of God, parents and ancestors. Look upon your Mother, Father, Teacher and Guest as living Gods.
