  • śoko nāśayate dhairyaṃ śoko nāśayate śrutam |
    śoko nāśayate sarvaṃ nāsti śokosamo ripuḥ ||
    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]

    taṃ tu deśaṃ na paśyāmi yatra bhrātā sahodaraḥ ||
    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.]
  • śrīman kṛpājalanidhe kṛtasarvaloka sarvaṅña śakta natavatsala sarvaśeṣin | svāmin suśīla sulabhāśrita pārijāta śrīveṅkaṭeśacaraṇau śaraṇaṃ prapadye || 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.
