Here are some subhashitas from Mahabharata, translated from “सार्थश्रीमहाभारतसुभाषितानि” of Vishnu Vinayak Paranjpe published in 1931 by M/s Keshav Bhikaji Dhawale of Girgaon, Mumbai
From Mahabharata Adiparva
अकाले कृत्यमारब्धं कर्तुर्नार्थाय कल्प्यते ।
तदेव काल आरब्धं महतेऽर्थाय कल्प्यते ॥१२.१३८.१५॥
Any work started at a wrong time will not bear fruit. The same work started at the right time are said to bring to the doer great results.
अगोप्तारश्च राजानो बलिषड्भागतस्कराः ।
समर्थाप्यादातारस्ते वै निरयगामिनः ॥१३.२३.८०॥
Those kings who do not protect the people are thieves who rob people of one sixth of their income in the form of tax. Such kings and the wealthy who do not do charity inspite of their capacity to do it will go to Hell after death.
अग्नौ प्रास्तं तु पुरुषं कर्मान्वेति स्वयंकृतम् ।
तस्मात्तु पुरुषो यत्नाद्धर्मं संचिनुयाच्छनैः ॥५.४०.१८॥
A man who has been cremated (after death) is followed only by his karma (both good and bad). So, man ought to make effort to gradually accumulate merit (by performing good actions).
Well compiled and presented!

I read recently from a Tamil Magazine about work by Sabdhartha Chinthamani, the work by Chidamabra kavi. This work is available in Saraswathi Mahal Library, Thanjavur, in palm leaf. When this manuscript is read in normal form it is Ramayana. When read from last leaf in reverse like urudu, it is Mahabharatha. It is very amazing to even hear about such possibility. Where can I get hard copy of it or even a soft copy in any web? Help me please.

The Subhashita with translation (taken from susanskrit.org & http://sanskritdocuments.org/home1.html) is given below.
न चोरहार्यं न च राजहार्यं
न भ्रातृभाज्यं न च भारकारी ।
व्यये कृते वर्धते एव नित्यं
विद्याधनं सर्वधन प्रधानम् ॥
विद्यारुपी धन को कोई चुरा नहि सकता, राजा ले नहि सकता, भाईयों में उसका भाग नहि होता, उसका भार नहि लगता, (और) खर्च करने से बढता है । सचमुच, विद्यारुप धन सर्वश्रेष्ठ है ।
It cannot be stolen by thieves,
न च राजहार्यं
Nor can it be taken away by kings.
It cannot be divided among brothers
न च भारकारि ।
It does not cause a load on your shoulders.
वर्धत एव नित्यम्
It indeed always keeps growing.

Hi I once read a story about men devotees studying with a monk. After years of hardship and wandering in the wilderness and many trials the monk sent them out into the world. He said to them I have prepared you for everything you may encounter in the world but beware of woman …… I cannot remember the end. But Sanskrit word woman translated to “creature with soft horns on her chest”. Is this correct?
You can find more Subhashitas on resanskrit.com, the posts on this site have great relevant visuals for each Subhashita
महात्मनां दर्शनं उत्तमं स्यात् महात्मवाक्य श्रवणं वरं स्यात् ।
श्रेष्ठो भवेत् साधु गुणानुवादः श्लाघ्यो भवेत् साधुसमागमः अपि ।।
It is very good to see noble or great persons (in our life), It is very good or better to listen their speeches or words/noble sayings (Should follow).It’s better to appreciate their virtues, and it is a good moment to be friendship or fellowship with noble people.
plz guide me how can i speak sanskrit in my daily life?.
Kaustubh, You will find many books in http://www.sanskritebooks.org/category/sanskrit/learn-sanskrit-sanskrit/
But it is easier to learn Sanskrit with the help of a teacher. You may also consider joining the classes/courses conducted by Samskritabharati – http://samskritabharati.in/courses/spoken-samskrit-class
Can u please provide vaidyakiya subhashitas
Sorry to trouble you much, and I’m writing to ask that if you’ve got the info about Master Candragomin’s works, where could I find the catalogue of his complete works?
It’s recorded that he’s written a poem/hymn or drama about the prince Viśvāntara/Sudāna.
Thanks a lot for any help!
