चतुर्वर्गसंग्रह - अहिंसा


तीर्थानि दीर्घाध्वपरिश्रमाणि
    बहुव्ययानि क्रतुडंबराणि ।
तपांसि मुक्त्वा तनुशॊषणानि
    हिंसाविरामे रमतां मतिर्वः ॥


- चतुर्वर्गसंग्रह



tIrthAni dIrgha adhva parishramANi
    bahuvyayAni kratuDambarANi ।
tapAmsi muktvA tanushoShaNAni
    himsAvirAme ramatAM matirvaH ॥

What is the way to attain salvation? To do a pilgrimage, one has to tread a very difficult and dangerous path which is very tiresome. To do rituals, one has to spend a lot of money. To do penance, one has to punish his body a lot. So wise men resort to the best way - shun all kinds of violence.
