śatakatrayam 1.61: bhavanti namrāstaravaḥ (trees laden with fruit)

by Jahnabi Barooah

भवन्ति नम्रास्तरव: फलोद्गमै-
र्नवाम्बुभिर्दूरविलम्बिनो घना: ।
अनुद्धता: सत्पुरुषा: समृद्धिभि:
स्वभाव एवैष परोपकारिणाम् ।।६१।।
नीतिशतके

trees laden with fruit
bow down low.
clouds dense with water
also hang low.
so too, wise men with
riches abundant
are not puffed up.
their character alone
is a boon for the world. ||61||
