Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Don’t Immerse Due To The Arrogance Of Your Vast Knowledge!

Even the roaring snowy ocean
..can be scooped with hand
and swallowed by Agasthiya,
..the King of saints!

Hence don’t immerse due to the
..arrogance equivalent to the lion
with regard to your vast knowledge
..comparable to the sea!
