(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Leave the desire for other’s wife!


If you like to leave the physical body,
…do esteemed penance!

If you like to have esteemed pride
…where you live, do charity!

If you like to filled with gentle valor,
…live contentedly with wisdom!

Leave the desire for other’s wife!

If you earn at least in small
…amounts everyday, wealth will
accrue automatically!
