Five Dangerous Vices - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

Dear sweet children! do you know?
Your old enmy is a demon
Who is embodiment of five vices
Lust, wrath, greed, attachment and violence.

You have to fight against these
This is a dangerous war you know
You have to adopt more yoga
Then you will be able to conquer.

The main violence is lust
This makes you impure soon
And this causes sorrow and pain
Lust deceives everyone every ages.

You are the incognito armies
To fight against the war of vices
Have yoga to supreme father
The substle and ocean of knowledge.

Remove your attachment from old skin
Don't have connection with old world
Sit on the pyre of knowledge
Be pure and true server of humanity.

Topic(s) of this poem: advice, attachment, greed, lust, spirituality, violence

Form: Prose Poem

    Lust, wrath, greed, attachment and violence has so much damaged the humanity that it's now almost irrepairable. A great poem with a great message. (Report)Reply

    Well captured/addressed. But then, it's so sad we live in a time where these vices are portrayed as virtues. Elegant admonition, good poet. (Report)Reply

    If we allow these vices to take hold of us, we are sure to be doomed! We cannot drive them easily. We have to wage a constant war! We also need God's grace! Nice warning! (Report)Reply

    The only way to overcome this demon is to get close to the Heavenly Father. Man apart from God listens to this demon and follows his evil ways. Thank you poet friend. (Report)Reply
