Composer: Bhartruhari a King of Ujjain, Bhartruhari was the elder step brother of his more renowned sibling, Vikramaditya. His life presents to us a living account of a person’s transformation from a pleasure-loving emperor who had everything at his disposal to a sage who gave us the immortal Shataka trilogy.

బోద్ధరో మత్సరగ్రస్తాః |
ప్రభ్వః స్మయదూషితాః ||
అబోధోప హతాశ్చాన్యే |
జీర్ణ మఙ్గే సుభాషితమ్ ||
అన్నివిధాలా తెలిసినట్టివారు అసూయతో ఉన్నారు. ప్రజల్ని పరిపాలించే ప్రభువులా?….. వారు గర్వం వల్ల కలిగిన మదం చేత గుడ్డి వారిలా వ్యవహరిస్తునారు. సామాజికులలో సాధారణ జనానికి మంచిమాటలు గ్రహించటంచేత తెలివి లేదు. దీనివల్ల ( నేను ప్రజలకు చెప్పదలుచుకున్న మంచిముక్కలు నాలుగూ ) నాలోనే ( చిరకాలంగా ) అణిగిపోయి ఉన్నాయి. ( ఇప్పుడు తగిన తరుణం వచ్చినందున, నా సుభాషితాలను ప్రకటిస్తున్నానని కవి భావం. )

Bodhdharo Mathsaragrasthaah |
Prabhvah Smayadhooshithaah ||
Abodhopa Hathaashchaanye |
Jeerna Magge Subhaashitham ||
Those who have knowledge are filled with jealousy. The rulers? – They are vain with arrogance and behaving blindly. The common man is incapable of understanding well-meaning good words. Hence all these days, I couldn’t express my well meant thoughts (The poet means now he got an opportunity to say them in his poems)

bodhdharo mathsaragrasthaah |
prabhvah smayadhooshithaah ||
abodhopa hathaashchaanye |
jeerna magge subhaashitham ||
