Subhashita # 10 – ālasyam hi manuṣhyāṇām

आलस्यं हि मनुष्याणां
शरीरस्थो महान् रिपुः |
नास्त्युद्यमसमो बन्धुः
कृत्वा यं नावसीदति ||

ālasyam hi manuṣhyāṇām sharīrastho mahānripu |
nāstyudyamasamo bandhuḥ kṛitvā yam nāvasīdati || (IAST)
Alasyam hi manuShyANAm sharIrastho mahAnripu |
nAstyudyamasamo bandhuH kRitvA yam nAvasIdati || (ITRANS)

It has helped them to grow up better and they are more relaxed at the end of the day. My other hobbies are listening to music and reading. I have always believed our ancient wisdom holds the key to many of our questions. You can reach me at roopa.hebbar AT gmail.com

  1. namastE, SReemati! Thank you for the wonderful quotation. I think there is a typographical error in the last word of the first line (actually the second pAdam of the SlOkam) of the samskR^ta version. The Roman script version is fine, I think. It should be महान् रिपुः instead of महान्रिपु .

    आलस्यं हि मनुष्याणां
    शरीरस्थो महान् रिपुः |
    नास्त्युद्यमसमो बन्धुः
    कृत्वा यं नावसीदति ||

    Thanks again for the gem.
