Neeti Shatakam Quotes – Bhartrihari’s Nitishataka

Knowledge is a special beauty of man. It is a hidden treasure. It gives one happiness, enjoyment and fame. It is the teacher of great teachers. It is one’s relative when he is in a strange place. It is the God divine. It is knowledge that is to be worshipped not money. One who is bereft of knowledge is a beast. A person devoid of interest in music, literature and arts is indeed an animal without horns and tail! It is a great fortune to animals that he lives without eating grass!Obeisance unto the Lord, who is not bound by space and time, who is infinite, whose form is knowledge personified who is effulgent, peaceful, and who can be realized only by one’s own experience. Neeti Shatakam
