checklist for a blessed life

तृष्णां छिन्धि भज क्षमां जहि मदं पापे रतिं मा कृथाः
सत्यं ब्रूह्यनुयाहि साधु-पदवीं सेवस्व विद्वज्जनं।
मान्यान् मानय विद्विषोऽप्यनुनय प्रख्यापय प्रश्रयं
कीर्तिं पालय दुःखिते कुरु दयाम् एतत् सतां चेष्टितम्॥७८॥
नीतिशतकं  भर्तृहरि
tṛṣṇāṁ chindhi bhaja kṣamāṁ jahi madaṁ pāpe ratiṁ mā kṛthāaḥ
satyaṁ brūhyanuyāhi sādhu-padavīṁ sevasva vidvajjanaṁ |
mānyān mānaya vidviṣo'pyanunaya prakhyāpaya praśrayaṁ
kīrtiṁ pālaya duaḥkhite kuru dayām etat satāṁ ceṣṭitam ||78||
nītiśatakaṁ  bhartṛhari

give up avariciousness for ever,  practice patience, steer clear of arrogance, never even think of committing a sin, always speak the truth, follow the path of the great, serve withe devotion the learned people, give utmost respect where it is due,  be humble, always strive to safeguard the good reputation, be kind to one who is in distress,...these are the natural course of action and code of conduct for a blessed life.
