SANSKRIT SLOKAS WITH TRANSLATION
Na chor haryam, Na cha raj haryam
Na bhratu bhajyam Na cha bharkari
Vyaye krute vardhart ev nityaam
Vidya dhanam sarva dhane pradhanam
No one can steal it, not authority can snatch,
Not divided in brothers, not heavy to carry,
As you consume or spend, it increases; as you share,
Education (Vidhya) is the best wealth among all the wealth anyone can have.
Vidya dadati vinayam,
Vinaya dadati paatrataam,
dhanaat dharmam tatatsukham.
Education gives Humility,
Humility gives Character,
from character one gets wealth,
from wealth one gets righteousness,
in righteousness there is joy.
