Magical Tree 1- Wish for true jewel

Magical Tree – Wish for true jewel

केयूराणि न भूषयन्ति पुरुषं हारा न चन्द्रोज्ज्वला
न स्नानं न विलेपनं न कुसुमं नालङ्कृता मूर्धजाः  ।
वाण्येका समलङ्करोति पुरुषं या संस्कृता धार्यते
क्षीयन्ते खलु भूषणानि सततं वाग्भूषणं भूषणं

Bracelets do not adorn a person. Nor do pearl necklaces shining like the moon, or a cleansing bath; nor anointment of the body, nor flowers, nor decoration for the hair. It is cultured speech alone which embellishes a man. All other ornaments lose their glitter, only the jewel of speech ever remains the jewel of jewels.
(Source – Bhrtruhari – Neetishatakam) 

In my words : Spending hours together in front of mirror , wearing most expensive clothes, Jewels & ornaments will not bring you knowledge or respect …it is our cultured speech and behavior which brings us respect. Anyone can wear expensive jewels my friends , but only few are respected because they have the true jewels -that is cultured thoughts, cultured speech and cultured behavior …..

I learnt from the above lesson – did you ?
