Sloka for the day

Sloka on Guru – from Sri Guru Ashtakam – written by Sri Sankaracharyar – 4/8

विदेशेषु मान्यः स्वदेशेषु धन्यः सदाचारवृत्तेषु मत्तो न चान्यः
मनश्र्चेन लग्नं गुरोरङ्घ्रिपद्मे ततः किं ततः किं ततः किं ततः किम् ||4

videšeṣu mãnyaḥ svadešeṣu dhanyaḥ
sadãcãravṛtteṣu matto na cãnyaḥ
manašcena lagnam gurorańghripadme
tataḥ kim tataḥ kim tataḥ kim tataḥ kim

“I am honoured in other lands and I am prosperous in my homeland; in the paths of righteous conduct there is none who surpasses me”, thus one may think; yet if one’s mind be not centered upon the lotus feet of the Guru, what then, what then, what then?
