Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Disciplined persons will not have bad qualities!

The people who know the discipline
…shall not think in mind the following five things:

namely they will not have the desire on other's wives,
…they will not drink liquor; they will not go for stealing,

they will not go for gambling and they will not try to kill somebody
…since the above five activities will make others

to reproach them that they are
…most in-disciplined persons and lead to the hell!
