Bharavi Teachings

Those who wish good of their friends should not please them with words which are not true.

The friendship of the bad is like the shade of some precipitous river bank with crumbling sides, which, falling, buries him who is beneath.

The man who wishes to rise should first dispel the darkness of anger by his intellect.
He who although powerful does not resist the encroachments of the darkness of delusion arising from anger, destroys all the wealth and power.
Fortunes, fleeting like the autumnal clouds, cannot be retained by those whose senses are unsteady.
