Dr. Madan Gandhi

(Lahore, India)

The Highest Wisdom


All outer oppression has the seed within
its effect we feel in all victory and defeat
success and failure, in advance and retreat
the real oppression grows from deep within

World of ours is governed by cause and effect
character and attitude are the factors twin
for happiness and unhappiness, joy and sorrow
deeds of today determine what’s lotted tomorrow

In these lie both cause and effect
of all what’s hidden behind our outward life
the doer and the recipient of the fruit of action
contained within is hell, purgatory and Heaven

The highest wisdom that your self and passion
life’s concerns and calculations
in trade, business and ambition
help make the best of your living and circumstances.
(Yayati)
