They Said:

Western Civilization must endure a certain shame in realizing that no precise equivalent of the term ‘niti’ (Sanskrit word roughly equivalent to “the wise conduct of life”), is found in English, French, Latin or Greek.
Arthur W Ryder,  Professor, University of California, when translating ‘Panchatantra’ from Sanskrit to English.

In the whole world, there is no study so beneficial and so elevating as that of the Upanishads. It has been the solace of my life, it will be solace of my death.
Schopenhauer, German Philosopher

ಸಪ್ತ ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಪಾತಕಗಳು: ೧. ತತ್ವ ರಹಿತ ರಾಜಕೀಯ; ೨. ದುಡಿಮ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಸಂಪತ್ತು; ೩. ನೀತಿ ವಿಹೀನ ವಾಣಿಜ್ಯ; ೪. ಶೀಲ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ; ೫. ಆತ್ಮ ಸಾಕ್ಷಿ ರಹಿತ ಭೋಗ; ೬. ಮಾನವತಾಶೂನ್ಯ ವಿಜ್ಞಾನ; ೭. ತ್ಯಾಗ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಪೂಜ;
( Seven social sins: politics without principles, wealth without work, pleasure without conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without morality, science without humanity, and worship without sacrifice. ) – MK Gandhi.
