Just one quote by Bhartrhari

Bhartrhari is a 6th-century Indian poet, author of the Satakatraya, a book of poetry consisting of three sections of a hundred verses each. His poetry displays the depth and intensity of his renunciation as he vacillates between the pursuits of fleshly desires and those of the spirit. This is most evident in the third and final section of the Satakatraya, which is translated by Sanskrit scholar Barbara Stoler Miller as Refuge in the Forest. The first and second sections are Among Fools and Kings and Passionate Encounters. He is sometimes identified with Bharthari, a legendary king of Ujjain in Indian folklore.

❝Love is the crocodile on the river of desire.❞[+]
