In this Shlok, Rishi Bharthari has emphasized on the importance of ‘Fine Arts’ in an individuals life.
संगीत कला विहीन: ,
साक्षात_ पशुपुच्छ विषाणहीन: ,
तृणं न खादन्नपि जीवमास्तद_ भागधेयं
परम. पशूनाम_ I
A man not interested in Literature, Music or any Art, is just like an animal without a tail and horn. It is the good fortune of the animals that he (man) lives without eating grass.
