1954- Sanskrit Pearl of the day:
It's all in the timing! Every deed has its own worth, based on the timing. What is appropriate today, doesn't necessarily hold good tomorrow - especially in deeds like giving, receiving or discharging one's duties.
आदानस्य प्रदानस्य कर्तव्यस्य च कर्मणः ।
क्षिप्रमक्रियमाणस्य कालः पिबति तद्रसम् ॥
aadaanasya pradaanasya kartavyasya cha karmaNaH |
kShipramakriyamaaNasya kaalaH pibati tadrasam ||
Meaning of the subhAShita:
In executing (deeds like) receiving, giving and responsibilities; if not executed instantaneously, time shall ingest the essence/sweetness (of the deed)
