दाने तपसि शौर्ये च विज्ञाने विनये नये।
विस्मयो न हि कर्तव्यो बहुरत्ना वसुन्धरा॥
dāne tapasi śaurye ca vijñāne vinaye naye |
vismayo na hi kartavyo bahuratnā vasundharā||
A very poignant reminder from the great Chanakya
One should never feel that he is too important because he has qualities like
giving gifts generously
he is doing intense penance
he is quite bold
he is well read
he is humble
he is dexterous in negotions
because he is not the sole possessor of any kr all of such great qualities.
There are ever so many persons having such achievements and qualities..
Many may be even better than him in respect of such accomplishments
So no one need be arrogant and showy just for this
The earth has ever so many gems..
So a single gem need not be considered as too important.
