It cannot be stolen by thieves,
na cha raajahaaryaM
Nor can it be taken away by kings.
It cannot be divided among brothers
na cha bhaarakaari |
It does not cause a load on your shoulders.
vardhata eva nityam
It indeed always keeps growing.
The wealth of knowledge..
Is the most superior wealth of all!
