One does not need advice about morality, if he is..!


One has to be deaf to the secret of others,
To be blind and not to look at other’s wife with lust,
To be dumb by not saying backbiting insolent words;

If one adopts and maintains the above three things
In his life by analyzing the intricacy and implications,
One need not advise him anything else about morality!

Hi,

பிறர்மறை யின்கட் செவிடாய்த் திறனறிந்
தேதிலா ரிற்கட் குருடனாய்த் தீய

அறங்கூற வேண்டா அவற்கு. – 158, நாலடியார் - மேன்மக்கள்.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
