path of righteousnes is tough indeed



निन्दन्तु नीतिनिपुणाः यदिवा स्तुवन्तु

लक्ष्मीः समाविशतु गच्छतु वा यदेष्ठम्।

अद्यैव वा मरणमस्तु युगान्तरे वा

न्याय्यात् परं प्रविचलन्ति पदं न धीराः।।


nindhandhu neethinipunaah yadhi vaa stuavanthu

lakshmeeh samaavishathu gachchathu vas yadeshtam

adhyaiva vaa maranamstu yugaantharey vaa

nyayyath param pravichalanthi padam na dheeranh



let the pundits in law praise them or deride them, let the goddess of wealth be with them or let the fickle lady run away as per her whims, let the death occur today itself or let life be long till the end of cycle of time, the enlightened and bold men never swerve even a micron from the path of righteousness 

For them righteous path is absolute in itself and not related to chances and circumstances.
