śatakatrayam 1.50: mṛgamīnasajjanānam (deer graze on grass)

by Jahnabi Barooah

मृगमीनसज्जानानां तृणजलसंतोषविहितवृत्तीनाम् ।
लुब्धकधीवरपिशुना निष्कारणमेव वैरिणो जगति ।।५०।।
नीतिशतके

deer graze on grass,
fish blossom in water,
and the
virtuous thrive quietly, joyfully.
for no fault of their own,
hunters, fishermen, and vile people
prey on them. ||50||
