Amiability (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

571. As the great grace of amiability resides in humans
The world continues to exist.
572. The world prospers and persists as people are benign.
Those who are not benign are a burden to the earth.
573. No use of the melody which is not in sync with the song.
By the eyes which shower no genial looks what use is there?
574. No use of eyes which seem to be in the face
But radiate not some amount of generosity.
575. Complaisant looks are the adorning grace of eyes.
Eyes bereft of them are nothing but sores in the face.
576. Those whose glinting eyes don’t show mercy
Resemble the tress implanted in the earth.
577. Eyeless are those whose eyes don’t gleam with kindness.
Those who have eyes are sure to have affable looks.
578. If you don’t deviate from duty and diffuse kindly looks
Then you have the right to own this world.
579. If you are kind to those who want to punish you
Then it is the chief of all virtues.
580. They eat with kindly smiles, the poisoned food of the friends
And continue to live with them affording gentle looks.
