Don't give up the virtuous means due to extreme greed! Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

If any person who happens to eat by begging,
…It is very pleasant that he should not get angry!

The pride of not staying isolated and
…thereby not getting too much sorrow is pleasant!

Considering the extreme greed in mind,
…It is pleasant of not getting vexed in mind
that leads to giving up the virtuous means!

பிச்சைபுக் குண்பான் பிளிறாமை முன்இனிதே
