A Person Who Is Superior To The Holy Persons In The Land Of Gods!


O’ A girl who adorns her hairdo
…with flowers rich in honey!

A person who doesn't like killing persons,
…doesn’t kill any other living beings,

doesn’t qualm for eating flesh,
…shall n’t make others in most distress,

shall not take vengeance,
…never act with partiality at the least,

is not only superior to the people
…of this earthly world,

but also superior to the holy persons
…in the land of Gods!

கொலைபுரியான் கொல்லான் புலான்மயங்கான் கூர்த்த

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
