About Salvation - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Reading scriptures, reciting hymns,
Visiting shrines, doing charity
And spending time in devotion
Will not take you to salvation.

Rather you’ll become arrogant
And grow disdainful of others
With the strength of God in your side,
Which would block you to salvation.

To all, death is the salvation.
Till death, suffering is in the card.
Post death no suffering at all;
All born will attain salvation.

Neither by study of the Vedas,
Nor by austere penance,
Nor by charity or rituals,
Can you see me in transcendal form.
(Krishna to Arjuna in Gita)
