SELLAMUTHU KANDASAMY (03-05-1960 / Natham)
1.Even achieving prideful wealth.
principled remain harmless
2.Though raged harms, principled
pure undo return.
3.Hurting harmless people unreasonably
returns, unremedial troubles.
4.Punish wrong, unkind, abash
them with kind.
5.What use thou learned
unguarding beings as-self.
6.Better unreveal felt harms
evade harming others.
7.Ever avoid harming even-little
anyone by heart.
8.Knowing consequences of harming
Why harming others?
9.Harming others in forenoon
harmed self afternoon.
10.Harmless lover, undo, since
harms depend wrong-doer.
Dedicated to Thiruvalluvar(31B.C) , the author in Tamil
