4.03 Advice - Poem by Munindra (Munnan) Misra

Knowing the answer advice is asked generally,
Following the same be rare unquestionably,
After giving it do ever be indifferent perfectly,
And never expect it to be followed truthfully. [1]

In giving advice seek to help - not please only,
Most receive advice but profit from it hardly,
Advice received should not be framed clearly,
Its implementation be the solution surely. [2]

Advice uncalled for should never be given,
Advice from person in difficulty not taken,
Keep advice from loved ones - even unpleasant,
Never advise on war, marriage or such event. [3]

Advice from friends receive open mindedly,
Never give up to it or follow it blindly,
Whether right or wrong grasp totally,
With judicious reserve comprehend fully. [4]

If asked for advice - give wholeheartedly,
Even if knowing its acceptance be failingly,
For in giving the same it helps your clarity,
Showing your own life's path - so lucidly. [5]
