Sanskrit Quotes : Category :: Company of Good Men

जाड्यं धियो हरति सिञ्चति वाचि सत्यं

मानोन्नतिं दिशति पापमपाकरोति।

चेत: प्रसादयति दिक्षु तनोति कीर्तिं

सत्संगति: कथय किं न करोति पुंसाम्।।

English Translation of Sanskrit Quote:

It removes the lethargy of the intellect, sprinkles (invests) truth in the speech, enhances the greatness and casts off sin,it clarifies the mind and spreads the fame all around;tell me what the company of the high-souled persons does not provide the man?

English Commentary on Sanskrit Quote:

As far as I know, no other Literature in the world has accorded the wisdom the level of literature. Most of the languages categorize the words of wisdom under morality. That way Sanskrit literature is unique in the sense it has taken the Subhashithas to a new height and thereby grown unbelievably. Some of the Subhashithas are pure gems of wisdom as well as pearls of poetry.

Here the poet Bharthrihari in his work "Neethishathaka" talks of the company of high-souled persons. Indians have always provided a very high place to a good company - no denying the hereditary its due place too. The verses on the vitues of good company have their fair share in the Subhashitha literature.

The poet lauds its achievement as follows. Countless are the virtues of a good company. The dullness of intellect one accrues due to bad company is undone in the first place and it is no mean achievement by itself. A habitual liar finds himself speaking the truth much to his own amazement. The total stature of a man reaches new heights as it adds greatness to it. It lessens the negativity of the personality as the amount of sin is drastically reduced. This leads to the clarity and happiness of the mind. The fame reaches far and wide. So there is an all-round improvement of one's personality. The question at the end is in fact, a positive assertion that every conceivable good thing can be achieved by a good company. It remembers me the saying "Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you what kind of person you are."
