Words of wisdom

Ancient wisdom handed over generations, thanks to Indian tradition of knowledge persistence and dissemination, in the form of Sanskrit verses. There has been hardly any fundamental changes in human life and, therefore, many of these are directly relevant even in the so-called fast paced life of modern man. However, some of them are defined in the context of social system prevailing in the past and, therefore, calls for an interpretation in present context.

Subject matter cover various topics like education, human relations, society, family, etc. Some of them are also advice by means of simple statement of fact. discussed span

Needless to say, many of these have had profound influence on my thought process. What I seek here is to present them, as I see it, as a series just in case it helps:

Jalabindu Nipaathena Kramasa Pooryathe Khata
Tathaahi Sarva Vidyaanam Dharmasya cha Dhanasya cha

A vessel kept in the rain gets filled a drop at a time (but it does get filled). Knowledge, social systems (and related values) and money are also built step by step

    Words of wisdom:
    To attain knowledge,add things everyday.
    To attain wisdom,remove things everyday.

    I agree with you, Doctor. Well said.

    Interestingly, it resonates with famous saying Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add but when there is nothing left to take away’
