जले तैलं खले गुह्यं

जले तैलं खले गुह्यं पात्रे दानं मनागपि
प्राज्ञे शास्त्रं स्वयं याति विस्तारं वस्तुशक्तितः
jale tailaṁ khale guhyaṁ pātre dānaṁ manāgapi
prājñe śāstraṁ svayaṁ yāti vistāraṁ vastuśaktitaḥ


ജലേ തൈലം ഖലെ ഗുഹ്യം പാത്രേ ദാനം മനാഗപി
പ്രാജ്ഞെ ശാസ്ത്രം സ്വയം യാതി വിസ്താരം വസ്തുശക്തിത

Even a minute drop of oil falling on the surface of water spreads itself to large areas.  Even a small secret shared with an untrustworthy person spreads like wildfire. Even a small gift given to a deserving person grows immensely within a short  time. Even with very  little or  no strain in teaching the intelligent disciple masters the scriptures and sciences.  This spontaneous growth is natural to these subjects.

It would appear that the exponential growth in publicity will be most prominent in respect of secrets shared with the idiot.
