4.03 Advise - Poem by Munindra (Munnan) Misra

Knowing the answer advise is asked generally,
Following the same be rare unquestionably,
After giving it do ever be indifferent perfectly,
And never expect it to be followed truthfully. [1]

In giving advise seek to help - not please only,
Most receive advise but profit from it hardly,
Advise received should not be framed clearly,
Its implementation be the solution surely. [2]

Advise uncalled for should never be given,
Advise from person in difficulty not taken,
Keep advise from loved ones - even unpleasant,
Never advise on war, marriage or such event. [3]

Advise from friends receive open mindedly,
Never give up to it or follow it blindly,
Whether right or wrong grasp totally,
With judicious reserve comprehend fully. [4]

If asked for advise - give wholeheartedly,
Even if knowing its acceptance be failingly,
For in giving the same it helps your clarity,
Showing your own life's path - so lucidly. [5]
