Dhammananda’s Tiger

Strive to help others, but
train the understanding
to see things as they are
not as they seem to be,
know who and what they
are - their attitude - to
handle them with care

Beware of whom you help,
a man released a tiger from
a net on receiving a promise
of safety, the tiger promptly
attacked him, a wise old fox
heard his plight and made the
tiger re-enter the net

In illustration of the argument,
warning the man to beware of
wickedness making promises
they never intend to keep…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
