Stay happy, healthy and safe – 60

  • This world is like a mountain.
    Your echo depends on you.
    If you scream good things,
    the world will give it back.
    If you scream bad things,
    the world will give it back.
    Even if someone says badly about you,
    speak well about him.
    Change your heart to change the world.

Stay Happy, healthy and safe -38

शरीरमाद्यं खलु धर्मसाधनम् ।।
śarīramādyaṃ khalu dharmasādhanam

शरीर ही सभी धर्मों (कर्तव्यों) को पूरा करने का साधन है। अर्थात शरीर को सेहतमंद बनाए रखना जरूरी है। इसी के होने से सभी का होना है अत: शरीर की रक्षा और उसे निरोगी रखना मनुष्य का सर्वप्रथम कर्तव्य है। पहला सुख निरोगी काया।

Body is instrument for all (good) deeds.

So its our most important duty to protect it

and keep it healthy.

~उपनिषद

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.
