@hymnoptera The transformation of the young, sporting poet in Shringara Shatakam to a chastened renunciate in Vairagya Shatakam is quite something

However, the stunning imagery/impact of the words continues through the arc

The young poet, bewitched by the joys of fair companionship..
@hymnoptera Compare the love lorn poet to the one here..reflecting life’s arc

Quite brutal, staring reality honestly in the face, yet beautiful..
@hymnoptera And for those unfortunate souls (😡), awaiting the right मुहूर्तम्, yet to start learning Samskritam, the आङ्लभाषानुवादचित्रम्।

What are you folks waiting for ? You are missing something unimaginably wonderful..

@hymnoptera The English one is an apology for a piss-poor diluted tea, I assure you.

Get the real deal and get started with Samskritam folks !
@patangaha भर्तृहरिः । वैराग्यशतकम्
Bhartrhari | Vairagya Shatakam

@patangaha Samskritam provides you a key to directly unlock the beauty of a genius such as Bhartrhari

This is reason enough to start learning Samskritam

Just savor the evocative phrase ‘jeeve vari taranga chanchala tare’ - beautiful ! You can almost ‘feel’ the imagery!

पठतु संस्कृतम्।
@patangaha Truly an awe-inspiring work of art are these Shataka Traya-3 Centuries- Shringara, Niti & Vairagya Shatakam

Savour the rest of the wondrous ‘Vairagya Shatakam’ (with English translations), I would recommend this excellent source……
