Shlok from Ramayana by Valmiki लोक-नीति -न चातिप्रणयः कार्यः कर्त्तव्योप्रणयश्च ते । उभयं हि महान् दोसस्तस्मादन्तरदृग्भव ॥ अर्थ- मृत्यु-पूर्व बालि ने अपने पुत्र अंगद को यह अन्तिम उपदेश दिया था- तुम किसी से अधिक प्रेम या अधिक वैर न करना, क्योंकि दोनों ही अत्यन्त अनिष्टकारक होते हैं, सदा मध्यम मार्ग का ही अवलम्बन करना। [The…
