रामायण - किष्किंधा - धर्म


हित्वा धर्मं तथार्थं च कामं यस्तु निषेवते ।
स वृक्षाग्रे यथा सुप्तः पतितः प्रतिबुध्यते ॥


- रामायण, किष्किंधा



hitvA dharmam tathA artham cha kAmam yastu niShevate ।
sa vRukSHagre yathA suptaH patitaH pratibuddhyate ॥


- rAmAyaNa, kiShkindhA


He who indulges in Kama having forgotten about dharma (morality) and even artha(wealth) will realize his mistake only after he is hurt. Just like a person who is sleeping on a branch of the tree. He will be woken up only when he falls.


- Ramayana, Kishkindha
