महाभारत - शांति - राज


यथा हि रश्मयोऽश्वस्य द्विरदस्यांकुशो यथा ।
नरेंद्रधर्मो लोकस्य तथा प्रग्रहणं स्मृतम् ॥


- महाभारत, शांति



yathA hi rashmayoH ashvasya dviradasya ankusho yathA ।
narendro dharmo lokasya tathA pragrahaNam smRutam ॥


- mahAbhArata, shAnti


One needs ropes and blinds to control a horse. One needs hooks to control an elephant. The king needs to follow his duties (Rajadharma) to control the dealings of the world.


- Mahabharata, Shanti
