yaśo ‘rthe dharma-sevanam

Meaning: A holy place will be viewed to consist of no more than a reservoir of water located at a far off place, and beauty will be determined based on one’s hairstyle.

Thank you once again for providing and sharing more wisdom from our forefathers. As terrifying as these verses state, there will always be those whom are greatly influenced by the great seers and rishis of the past. I found this video to be very arousing and I would never have believed that most people will generally live to only 50 years. Insigtful and thought-provoking.
