SIX SANSKRIT MOTTOES

(Reproduced from Swami Vivekananda in America: New Discoveries. These together with the English translations, were transcribed by Swamiji in six of his photographs.)

1.         Ajar‚maravat pr‚jnah vidy‚m
        artham cha chintayet
Grihita iva kesheshu mrityun‚
        dharmam ‚charet

When in search of knowledge or prosperity think that thou would never have death or disease, and when worshipping God think that death's hand is in your hair.


2.         Eka eve suhrid dharma
       nidhanepyanuy‚ti yah

Virtue is the only friend which follows us even beyond the grave.

Everything else ends with death.

VIVEKANANDA.

3.         One infinite pure and holy — beyond
thought beyond qualities I bow down
to thee

Swami Vivekananda.

4.         Samat‚ sarva-bhuteshu etanmuktasya lakshanam.

Equality in all beings this is the sign of the free

Vivekananda.

5.         Thou art the only treasure in this world

Vivekananda.

6.         Thou art the father the lord the mother the husband and love

Swami Vivekananda.
