In Others’ Service

 

Trees bear fruit for others’ sake.  Rivers flow for others to use. Cows give milk for all.  This body of ours too is meant to serve others.

परोपकाराय फलन्ति वृक्षाः परॊपकाराय वहन्ति नद्यः /  परॊपकाराय दुहन्ति गावः परॊपकारार्थम् इदं शरीरम् //

parOpakArAya phalanthi vrkSHAha parOpakArAya vahanthi nadhyaha /  parOpakArAya dhuhanthi gAvaha parOpakArArTHam idham sharIram //

    • Thank you for visiting our site. Regarding your query … Unfortunately, I am not able to help you at the moment. The only lead I got is that this is a verse from the Mahabharata. However, we will keep looking and keep you posted if we manage to locate the reference.

  1. I learnt a subashithaani in my 12th std…not able to understand meaning though I know it by heart

    Paropakara vismrithinya Yujyathae Managapi
    Apakriya Thuthatkritha Thadaiva Vismrithavara…

    • Thank you for visiting our blog, and our heartfelt apologies for the long delay in responding. The verse could be read to mean that one should help others and forget that one did so, whereas a bad deed that is experienced by one is itself worthy of being forgotten.
