प्रश्नोत्तर रत्नमालिका


कुत्र विषं दुष्टजने किमिहाशौचं भवेदृणं नृणाम् ।
किमभयमिह वैराग्यं भयमपि किं वित्तमेव सर्वेषाम् ॥


- प्रश्नोत्तर रत्नमालिका


kutra viSham duShTajane kimih ashaucham bhaved RuNam nRuNam ।
kimabhayam iha vairAgyam bhayamapi kim vittameva sarveShAm ॥

- prashnottara ratnamAlikA


Where is poison? In the mind of a rogue. What is unclean? A man who is under debt. What gives you protection? Lack of greed is the best protection. What is the greatest cause of fear? Possessing wealth; One is always under the fear of losing it.

- Prashnottara Ratnamalika, Wealth
