वदनं प्रसादसदनं सदयं हृदयं सुधामुचो वाचः ।
करणं परोपकरणं येषां केषां न ते वन्द्याः ॥
There is such a thing called personal magnetism. Some call it charisma. It is formless, but is visible even to the visually challenged. Stroking the cheeks of Jawaharlal Nehru, Helen Keller commented on his mellow kindness. You cannot discover its whereabouts, as it lies deep within. You cannot hear it, as it lies hidden in words, not uttered.
You see it toiling around, but cannot figure it out.
And, it is ever-present everywhere, as thought, word, and deed.
Literally translated, this Shubhashitham means:
“Who will not honor such a person - who keeps a smile on his face always, has compassion in his heart, whose speech is controlled, and always helps others.”
