without threat coercion or undue influence

पद्माकरं दिनकरो विकचं करोति
चन्द्रो विकासयति कैतवचक्रवाळं॥
नाभ्यर्थितो जलधरोऽपि जलं दधाति
सन्तः स्वयं परहिते विहिताभियोगाः॥
भर्तृहरेः नीतिशतकं ॥६३॥
padmākaraṁ dinakaro vikacaṁ karoti
candro vikāsayati kaitavacakravāḻaṁ||
nābhyarthito jaladharo'pi jalaṁ dadhāti
santaḥ svayaṁ parahite vihitābhiyogāḥ||
bhartṛhareḥ nītiśatakaṁ ||63||

Another gem from the philosopher king, Bharthruhari
The lord of the day, without any petition from the lotus, opens up its petals as the first action in the day. The nectar of the rays of the moon opens up the lily flower without any prompting. The clouds of monsoon fill the earth with water without any entreaty from us. This is the hallmark of the noble souls. They do service for the welfare of all spontaneously and without any external promptings ( without threat, coercion or undue influence in the parlance of law).
when it comes to this great poet, his words speak for themselves.. no one can elaborate further on his words.

।श्रीकृष्णो रक्षतु।
|śrīkṛṣṇo rakṣatu|
Have a nice and happy day
with profound respect and warm regards
K V Ananthanarayanan
त्यजन्तु बान्धवाः सर्वे निन्दन्तु गुरवो जनाःI
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.
Iकृष्णात् परं किमपि तत्वं अहं न जाने"I
लोकाः समस्ताः सुखिनो भवन्तु।
lokāḥ samastāḥ sukhino bhavantu|
