All Other Happiness Come Along With Virtue - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Luminous rudrakshas
grow in the mountains,

Much delight is borne
by the pleasing words
of the chaste wife / fiancee,

Virtuous qualities
are attained by the
soft nature and grace,

All other happiness
come along with VIRTUE,
resulting in consequence
with the help of his wealth!
