One Has To Cultivate Good Thoughts! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

We do trim and prune the creepers and plants
To decorate the beautiful garden flower orchids!
But many of us are not pruning our wavering mind
Every man has to control his mind for a healthy life!

A famous philosopher Vemanna says;
The man who eats the dog is wise,
The man who eats the pig is highly wise,
The man who eats elephant is greatly wise!

Dog denotes anger,
Pig denotes arrogance,
Elephant denotes desire - one who
Controls all the three is extremely wise!

Weakly mind results in anger,
To eliminate mental weakness
To strengthen the inner energy,
One has to cultivate good thoughts!
