Dear list,

I am looking for the source of the following half-"sloka:

   nAsty udyamasamo bandhu.h nAvasIdati

According to Apte, Practical Sanskrit-English Dictionary,
s.v. ava-sad-, it is from Bh[art.rhari], but I have been unable to
find it D. D. Kosambi's edition with pAda index.

The quote appears on Rasmus Rask's gravestone in the
Assistenskirkegård in Copenhagen, cf.
(if anybody is interested, I can email him/her a better photograph).
