Ahimsa Parmo Dharma | My own self is the mythical river VAITARNI, my own self is the legendary SHALMALI tree, my own self is the fanciful KAAMADHENU, my own self is the imaginary NANDAN garden. My own self is the doer and undoer, of unpleasant and pleasant experiences; my own self, on meritorious path, is my friend, my own self, engaged in demerit, is my foe. | Parasparo Upgraha Jivanam
