bursting at the seams?

स भारः सौम्य भर्तव्यो यो नरं नावसादयेत्।
तदन्नमपि भोक्तव्यं जीर्यते यद् अनामयं॥
श्रीमद्वात्मीकिरामायणं आरण्यकाण्डं  ५०--२७
sa bhāraḥ saumya bhartavyo yo naraṁ nāvasādayet|
tadannamapi bhoktavyaṁ jīryate yad anāmayaṁ||
śrīmadvātmīkirāmāyaṇaṁ āraṇyakāṇḍaṁ  50--27
സ ഭാര: സൌമ്യ ഭര്തവ്യം യോ നരം നാവസാദയെത്
തദ്‌ അന്നമപി ഭോക്തവ്യം ജീര്‍യതെ യദ് അനാമയം
One should undertake to bear only that much of load that he is capable of. Similarly one should eat food only to the extent it will maintain him without any illness.
It is the tendency of the overly ambitious persons to undertake to perform things far beyond their capacity.  In the end they are likely to fail and lose respectability.   The tendency to overeat is the cause of almost half the problems in this world.

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
