Shri Narendra Modi's "My Idea of India"


My Idea of India

Narendra Modi

सत्यमेव जयते 

Truth Alone Triumphs

अहिंसा परमो धर्मः 

Non-violence is the topmost Dharma

पौधों मेंपरमात्मा दीखना

God seen even in Plants

आ नो भद्राःक्रतवो यन्तु विश्वतः

Let good thoughts come from everywhere - from all the world

सर्व पंथ समभाव

All Spiritual Paths are treated Equally

वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम्

The whole World is one single Family

सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः

सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः

May all be prosperous and happy

May all be free from illness

सह नाववतु

सह नौ भुनक्तु

सह वीर्यं करवावहै

तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै

May we all be protected

May we all be nourished

May we work together with great energy

May our intellect be sharpened - and not give rise to Hostility

न त्वहं कामये राज्यं न स्वर्गं न पुनर्भवम्

कामये दुःखतप्तानां प्राणिनामार्तिनाशनम्

Happiness lies not in the desire for state, or material, nor the desire for Heaven, nor reincarnation

Happiness lies in dousing the pain and suffering of all living beings

वैष्णव जन तो तेने कहिये

जे पीड परायी जाणे रे

One who is a true devotee of God - Feels the pain of others

दरिद्र नारायण सेवा

Service of the poor is equivalent in importance and piety to the service of God

नर करनी करे तो नारायण हो जाए

If a human being Acts – He can become god

नारी तू नारायणी

Woman you are a veritable Goddess

यत्र नार्यस्तु पूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवता:

यत्रैतास्तु न पूज्यन्ते सर्वास्तत्राफला: क्रिया:

Where Women are honoured - There Divinity blossoms

Where They Are dishonoured  - All Action Remains Unfruitful

जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी

Mother and Motherland are superior to Heaven
