Sloka Api swarnamayi lanka na me with meaning
'Api swarnamayi lanka na me' is a famous sloka told by Lord Rama to his younger brother Lakshmana showing importance of Patriotism and love for country. Patriotism is a natural and probably the most important factor in the country’s success, because if people are the patriots, they work hard for the development of their country, protection of its historical heritage and improvement of the love towards the culture of the nation.
अपि स्वर्णमयी लङका न मे लक्ष्मण रोचते ।
जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी ॥
Api swarnamayi lanka na me Lakshman rochate
janani janmabhoomishch swargaadapi gasriyasi
Sri Rama says to Lakshmana ,” Even though this Lanka is made of gold, still it does not appeal to me. The Mother who gave birth to me and my motherland are more respected and at a higher level than heaven itself.”
