Sanskrit Translation of Sentence for Tattoo of Mona Kettleson - Penner

May we live like the lotus, at home in muddy water
=
कमलमिव जीवाम गृहे पंकिलजले

When feeling lost or weak, return to yourself. To who you are.
And when you get there, you will discover yourself,
like a lotus flower in full bloom,
even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
=
यदा नष्टतां दुर्बलतां वानुभवसि स्वात्मानं प्रत्यागच्छ यामसि
यदा तत्र प्राप्नोषि स्वात्मानमाविष्करिष्यसि च
पूर्णविकसितकमलपुष्पमिव
अपि पंकिलतडागे सुंदरं बलवच्च
