Elders Edwise

ધરમ ના કામમાં ઢીલ ન કરવી.

Gujarati: dharam naa kaam maa Dheel na karavi.
Translation: when it comes to do duty/charity, don't delay.

My notes: the meaning of dharam can be interpreted in more than one way.

Dictionary meanings:

  • ઢીલ - f. - delay, dilatoriness; looseness, slackness, laxity; indifference, carelessness
  • ધરમ - m. - knowledge, faith or belief in the matter of morality, good behavior, death, life after death, God, etc.; religion; religious practices; merit or virtue; charity; duty, obligation; first of the four objects of life, property, quality, nature; name of Yudhisthira; Yama, God of death.
