    Origin and Meaning of a Scripture

    Can any one please tell me the origin an meaning of the shloka that my father used to chant, as follows:

    atmabat paradaresu, paradabyesu lostrobat; atmabat sarbabhutesu (...) sansthita.

    I only vaguely remember it and would like to know where to look for it. I have tried googling it but was not successful.

    Thank you for your kindness.

    Namaste Shantanu

    I think the main problem is the transliteration … b and v … always confusing.

    atmabat paradaresu, paradabyesu lostrobat; atmabat sarbabhutesu (...) sansthita.
    matrvat paradaresu paradravyesu lostravat atmavat sarvabhutesu yah pasyati sa panditah.

    Re: Origin and Meaning of a Scripture

    I have been advised, as follows:


    I am seeking explanation of the mantra मातृवत् परदारेषु परद्रव्येषु लोष्टवत्
    आत्मवत् सर्वभूतेषु यः पश्यति पण्डितः
    Shantanu Panigrahi
    लव लवानियाँ
    Shantanu Panigrahi
    it is from hitopadesh
    Meaning He is a pandit who sees the wives of others as his mother, the wealth of others like clod of earth or clay and all beings as his own self.
    Saroj Kanta Das
    A verse in the Gita says,
    विद्याविनयसम्पन्ने ब्राह्मणे गवि हस्तिनि |
    शुनि चैव श्वपाके पण्डिता: समदर्शिन: ||
    The truly learned, with the eyes of divine knowledge, see with equal vision a Brahmin, a cow, an elephant, a dog, and a dog-eater.
