Assertion Of The Strength Of Virtue (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
31. Glory and wealth, virtue brings.
What greater gain can be obtained from other things?
32. Virtue alone affords more benefits in life.
Forgetting of it makes one fall in worse strife.
33. To the possible extent and means without fie,
wherever you go, to practise virtue try.
34. It is virtue to be spotless in mind.
All other deeds of evil minds are mere noise and its kind.
35. Keep away envy, desire, wrath and bitter words
And do possible deeds of virtue in righteous modes.
36. Don’t postpone the practice of virtue to the later days.
When the soul leaves the body, support, it lays.
37. We need not tell about the fruits of virtue.
See them between the bearer and the rider of a palanquin.
38. When one does deeds of virtue on all the days,
Such acts will be the stone to block the births later.
39. From deeds of virtue flows delight.
Acts all else are void of fame and pleasure.
40. One should do deeds of virtue
but rid of deeds of vice.
