Samanyan Lakshminarayanan


Intelligence is a wrap of all
it is a wrap of the intellect
along with intuition and compassion

Intellect needs to be developed
Intuition would grow with age and experience
Compassion we have from head to toe

Intellect's growth is extraordinary
Intuition too gains in intellects growth
compassion seems a lost expression

yes. we do have it from head to toe
why do we resist to show
compassion can be seen as the life in the eye

Compassion cannot be's natural
an infant's eye would show compassions beauty
compassion is the thread which would make this garland

the beads of intellect and intuition
if not woven through compassion..would'nt
make up this garland...intelligence

A wrap without compassion would be a dead wrap

    Well said. Heart and brain should work in tantum. Otherwise, robots are better beings than man. Reasoning has a limit. More than intelligence, what we need is wisdom. Acceptance of the variety of life should there. (Report) Reply

    You raise a valid and necessary question here. Yes! Without compassion, piety, any amount of intelligence is waste and useless. A very good topic, well composed. (Report) Reply

    The most imporatant intelligence part of life is -
    To learn - how to love others
    How to let the love in.

    Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things,
    Man will not himself find peace. -
    This is the Philosophy of Civilization

    Wonderful concept
    warpped in wonderful words.

    Thank you dear poet. (Report) Reply

    compassion should come naturally, but for material gains, this compassion is burried 6 feet below the earth at many places today. (Report) Reply

    Good one. I think life is a package of so many qualities of man but their mix-up makes him different from others and there lies the beauty and enjoyment in this world.

    Well said! !
    But let me add to that:
    I think that there is a difference between offensive & defensive actions. I haven't met many people who are helpful but you can't really condone them - I think that it's sufficient not to be hurtful. To avoid doing harm to another is (in my opinion) much better than trying to be helpful or compassion. We can't always help everyone, we may wish to, but the fact is that we can't. But, we can avoid hurting another. (Report) Reply

    intelligence is either acquired or required...individual should have plays an important role on human's behavior, personality, and etc..all living things have this...its a gift from GOD...
