"Dharma eva hato hanti , Dharmo rakshati rakshitaha ."

Dharma violated , destroys . Dharma cultivated , preserves.

"Yato dharma thatho jayaha ."

Where there is Dharma , there victory also is .

– Sage Vyasa in The Mahabharata.

अयं निज : परो वेत्ति गणना लघुचेतसाम् |
उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् ||

This is my man and that one is a foreigner ,
this sort of understanding prevails in the narrow
minded people. But for the broad minded the whole
world is their family.

Hitopadesha ( Mitralabha -71 )

( From the book Gita Darshanam , printed by
Vivekananda Institute of Human Excellence, Hyderabad.)

पत्रं पुष्पं फलं तोयं यो मे भक्त्या प्रयच्छति |
तदहं भक्त्युपह्रतमश्नामि प्रयतात्मन : ||

Whosoever offers Me with love a leaf , a flower,
a fruit or even water with a pure mind and devotion,
I delightfully accept it with love.

अनन्याश्चिन्तयन्तो मां ये जना : पर्युपासते |
तेषां नित्याभियुक्तानां योगक्षेमं वहाम्यहम् ||

To those who worship Me alone , thinking of
no other , to those ever self-controlled , I bring
full security and personally attend to their needs.
