महाभारत - आदि - काम


न जातु कामः कामानामुपभोगेन शम्यति ।
हविषा कृष्णवर्त्मेव भूय एवाभिवर्धते ॥


- महाभारत, आदि


na jAtu kAmaH kAmAnAmupabhogena shamyati ।
haviShA kRuShNavartmeva bhUya eva abhivardhate ॥

- mahAbhArata, Adi


Lust, wanton or greed will not be conquered by satisfying it. It is like trying to douse a fire by adding ghee. It will only grow stronger.

- Mahabharata, Adi

  2. काम व धर्म महान पुरुषार्थ हैं किन्तु ये पुरुषार्थ स्वच्छंन्दता से नष्ट हो जाते हैं। अतः इसकी लगाम धर्म के हाथों होनी चाहिए।
