“Janani Janmabhoomischa swargadapi gariyasi (जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी)”, is a phrase from a Sanskrit verse. This phase is also the national motto of Nepal.

The source of this verse is unknown. It is not found in Valmiki Ramayana published by Gita Press.

अपि स्वर्णमयी लङ्का न मे लक्ष्मण रोचते ।
जननी जन्मभूमिश्च स्वर्गादपि गरीयसी ॥

– लक्ष्मण ! यद्यपि यह लंका सोने की बनी है, फिर भी इसमें मेरी कोई रुचि नहीं है, क्योंकि जननी और जन्मभूमि स्वर्ग से भी महान हैं।

– Lakshmana, even this golden Lanka does not appeal to me. Mother and motherland are greater than heaven.
