Here is the translation:
जीव यथा श्वस्तनदिने मरिष्यसि
शिक्षस्व यथा शाश्वतं जीविष्यसि

Transliteration (in two transliteration systems: IAST and ITRANS):
(IAST) jīva yathā śvastanadine mariṣyasi
śikṣasva yathā śāśvataṃ jīviṣyasi.
(ITRANS) jIva yathA shvastanadine mariShyasi
shikShasva yathA shAshvataM jIviShyasi.
This translation is not of our authorship. It can be found here: http://freetranslationblog.blogspot.com ... chive.html.
Anyway, we can affirm that it is correct and reliable.
The word-by-word correspondence is:
Live (jīva) as if (yathā) you were to die (mariṣyasi) tomorrow (śvastanadine)
Learn (śikṣasva) as if (yathā) you were to live (jīviṣyasi) forever (śāśvataṃ).
Merci de corriger notre français si nécessaire.
