rain in the ocean

अप्रगल्भस्य या विध्या कृपणस्य च यद्धनं।
यच्च बाहुबलं भीरोः व्यर्थमेतत् त्रयं भुवि॥
भोजप्रबन्धम्  बल्लालदेवस्य
apragalbhasya yā vidhyā kṛpaṇasya ca yaddhanaṁ|
yacca bāuhubalaṁ bhīroḥ vyarthametat trayṁ bhuvi||
bhojaprabandham  ballaladevasya

അപ്രഗല്ഭസ്യ  യാ  വിദ്യാ കൃപണസ്യ ച യദ് ധനം
യച്ച ബാഹുബലം ഭീരോ: വ്യര്ത്ഥ്മേതത് ത്രയം ഭു‍വി

These three things are sheer waste in this world.  Knowledge for a person who is not capable of putting such knowledge to  appropriate use.  Wealth in the hands of a miser  and  excessive body strength possessed by a coward.
Mere knowledge which is not applied through proper action or by suitable propagation   will remain unseen and unnoticed and the scholar may live long to die in obscurity.  If someone has immense wealth and  he is always hesitant to spend even a penny,  the wealth will either get stolen or when he dies will go away to somebody and will get wasted freely.  Through heavy eating and with or without exercise one can possess immense physical strength.  But if the person is a mere coward with no strength of mind or  sense of purpose, such great power  will go completely waste.

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