Thought for the day!

శత విహాయ భోక్తవ్యం - సహస్రం స్నాన మాచరేత్
లక్షం విహాయ దాతవ్యం - కోటిం త్యక్త్యా హరిం భజేత్!!

వంద పనులు విడిచిపెట్టయినా వేళకు భోజనం చేయాలి. వేయి పనులు విడిచి స్నానం చేయాలి . లక్ష పనులు విడిచి దానం చేయాలి. కోటి పనులు విడిచి దైవ ప్రార్ధన చేయాలి…

I'll transliterate and translate the meaning for the benefit of everyone.

Satha vihaaya bokthavyam - sahasram snaana machareth
Laksham vihaaya daathavyam - Kotam thrukthya haaram bajeth

Meaning:- You may skip a hundred other activities to have your food, a thousand activities to take bath, a lakh activities to donate alms and a crore to offer prayers to the almighty.

  1. I would think a Crore for both alms and prayer. Don't agree with lakh for alms and Crore for God, infact the other way makes more sense to me. I mean isn't service to mankind service to God?

    On a lighter note, it is 2 birds in one shot, service to Man and God:)

  2. yeah sure.. always.... in case of prayer.... u see salat is the most important part of islam.. while cleanliness is half the faith...

    anyways..nice saying..

  3. @Hasi... offering prayer I dont mean..hours together sit and offer..but thankful to GOD for whatever we have..sometime..and go on with your rest of crore activities..

    @Waqas Man..
    Ya man right.
