136-Vishvaparidhiyadello Soorya chandrarinaache...

Translation:   "The outer limit to this universe is somewhere beyond the sun and the moon. We can not know that. But for you, you can be the center of the universe and you can be where ever you want. The reach of your universe is as much as you can exhale (as far as you can think, as far as your fame/influence can reach). You must be like a fragrant flower which is very small, but has its influence far-reaching becuase of its fragrance." – Mankutimma
