Three indices may appear in one’s (unstable) body!


Forgetting the lively persons, parents;
Forgetting what they had done to us,
Forgetting our duty to them, scorn and abuse!

Regretting that we lost everything, yes!
When the end comes to the parents
Feeling sorry for their demise!

Feeling ashamed for not doing virtuous deeds
While suffering combined with losing physical health
Due to the ailing incurable disease!

Are the three indices that may appear
In one’s body which is unstable
In this world!

Parents are the Intellectual subjects of life, Fame!
Children have no gratitude towards parents, hush!
And they are considered like objects of unstable body, Shame!

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
