Subbaraman N V

(31st July 1941 / Karaikkudi - Tamilnadu- India)

*ALL I NEED TO PRACTISE!


I know no God
no religion
no philosophy!

I know no Bible
no Quoran
no Dhammapada
no Mahabharatha
no Ramayana!

I follow and practise
Help ever, hurt never
Love all, Serve all
Be kind, be friendly!

That is all what I know and
That is all I need to practise!

    You have summed up the contents of all the religious texts of the world in such a nice nutshell here. Reading this and living by it in letter and spirit is much better than reading any holy text. A 10+ absolutely for this. (Report) Reply

    Morality and ethics are not the prerogative of the theists or the dogmatists. Your simple verse speaks your humanist truth honestly and eloquently. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    'Practice makes a Man perfect'

    A perfect Man is a rare specie.
    Great attempt to practice
    Noble gesture to be a rare specie.

    I really love the theme in this poem.
    This world needs perfect people.

    Very good thought
    Poured on all readers
    To realise and practice. (Report) Reply

    religion

    Being good is the teaching of relegion, what you do or practice to the least of our brethren you do it also to God! (Report) Reply

  • Naseer Ahmed Nasir (3/26/2009 10:25:00 PM)

    Every religion emphasizes to practice life in good sense and faith. So when you say' Help ever, hurt never, Love all, Serve all, Be kind, be friendly! ' you practice religion indeed. (Report) Reply

    Practise what you preach, no need to know all information from a millions of books. good work 10+ (Report) Reply

    Sir,
    Knowingly or unknowingly, you are actually following what is stated in scriptures only. Even scriptures preach the same thing. 'Sathdharmacharana' and '
    samadrishti' are preached by Bhagavat Geeta. The preachings of our scriptures are in blood, in our genes and in our heritage. They follow you even without your knowing that as innate consciousness..........Great poem. (Report) Reply

    I respect your humility, all the words landed from your heart, i'm confidant...may the cosmos shower you the rain of love to humanity... (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,

Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
