चतुर्वर्गसंग्रह - मोक्ष


तावद्धर्मकथा मनोभवरुचिर्मोक्षस्पृहा जायते
    यावत्तृप्तिसुखोदयेन न जनः क्षुत् क्षामकुक्षिः क्षणम् ।
प्राप्ते भोजनचिंतनस्य समये वित्तं निमित्तं विना
    धर्मे कस्य धियः स्मरं स्मरति कः केनेक्ष्यते मोक्षभूः ॥


- चतुर्वर्गसंग्रह



tAvad dharmakathA mano bhava ruchiH mokSha spRuhA jAyate
    yAvat truptisukhodayena na janaH kShut kShAmakukShiH kShaNam ।
prApte bhojanachintanasya samaye vittam nimittam vinA
    dharme kasya dhiyaH smaraM smarati kaH kEna eekShyate mokShabhUH ॥

Kama(luxuries), stories about dharma and salvation make sense only when one the carnal necessities (hunger) are satisfied. Who can think about dharma when you are hungry and it is lunch (or dinner) time? Who can even think of other luxuries of life? Who can even think about salvation?
