śatakatrayam 1.37: rājandudhukṣasi yadi (o king! if you wish to milk)

by Jahnabi Barooah

राजन्दुधुक्षसि यदि क्षितिधेनुमेनां
तेनाद्य वत्समिव लोकमिमं पुषाण।
तस्मिंश्च सम्यगनिशं परिपोष्यमाणे
नानाफलं फलति कल्पलतेव भूमि:।।३७।।
नीतिशतके

o king! if you wish to milk this cow-like earth,
then nourish it now like a calf.
when he is carefully nourished for a long time,
then like a philosopher’s stone,
the earth will yield many fruits. ||37||
