सत्यमेव जयते नानृतं सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः।

satyameva jayate nānṛtaṃ satyena panthā vitato devayānaḥ।

Truth alone triumphs, not falsehood.
Through Truth lies Devayâna- the path of gods.

असत्य नहीं,  सत्य हमेशा विजयी होता है।

सत्य देवताओं तक जाने का मार्ग है।

उतिष्ठत। जाग्रत।

प्राप्य वरान्निबोधत।

Transliteration:
utiṣṭhata। jāgrata। prāpya varānnibodhata।

English Translation:
Arise. Awake. And stop not till the goal is reached.

Hindi Translation:
उठो। जागो।

और तब तक नहीं रुकना जब तक लक्ष्य हासिल न हो।

 

Swami Vivekananada

Stay happy, healthy and safe- 2

Our greatest happiness does not depend

on the condition of life

in which chance has placed us,

but is always the result of a good conscience,

good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.

Thomas Jefferson

I swear !

I swear, since seeing Your face,

the whole world is fraud and fantasy

The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.

The distracted birds

can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.

A house of love with no limits,

a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,

a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.

Rumi, The Divani Shamsi Tabriz XV
