Kindness is the unmatching penance

'O' heart!
Do penance! Do penance!
If you do penance, you can achieve
Whatever you like, in this universe;

Nothing is equal and better than kindness,
Kindness is the unmatchable penance,
People who are kind to everybody
Live for ever gladly and happily'

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is the impulse and result of reading a nice poem by Great Tamil Poet Subramania Barathi.

"செய்கதவம்! செய்கதவம்! நெஞ்சே! தவம் செய்தால்
எய்த விரும்பியதை யெய்தலாம் - வையகத்தில்
அன்பிற் சிறந்த தவமில்லை அன்புடையார்
இன்புற்று வாழ்த லியல்பு"

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
