Magical Tree 12 – Be in the right category
प्रारभ्यते न खलु विघ्नभयेन नीचैः
प्रारभ्य विघ्नविहता विरमन्ति मध्याः।
विघ्नैः पुनः पुनरपि प्रतिहन्यमानाः
प्रारब्धमुत्तमगुणा न परित्यजन्ति ॥
There are three categories of people who contemplate an undertaking. At the lowest level are those who never start off for fear of encountering obstacles.Those at the middle level start the project but, at the first sign of obstacles, withdraw themselves from the goal. At the top level are those who, in spite of repeated obstacles, persist in their work until they take the undertaking to a successful conclusion.
