Habits - Poem by Dr.Balnarayana Bandam

An established custom
Good or bad are habits
They are like solutes
Dissolve in the body
Which act as solvents?
Thus formed mixtures
Are so much shared
A lot of difficulties to separate
The water content of Sugar or salt
Stays even after the filter
Simple sift, will not suffice
Needs a lot of strain to split
Ways of human life expose
By the hidden habit content
Excellent or wickedalikethe effect
Sure never ease to eliminate
Hinduism says there lays
Six evil passions which lodge
In the human mind and command
Lust is the captain of the total

anger, greed, delusion pride and envy
Thus better never build thy body
Allowing awful habits to melt
And make pure mind impure
Lord Sri Krishna speaks senses are superior
To dull matter, higher of the senses is mind
Aptitude still higher, the soul is the super
As fire roofed by smoke, mirror by dust
Embryo by womb intellect by the level of lust
Making personality perfect one employ
Super and spiritual strength to beat
The insatiable lust enemy with which
Added evil associates depart
Ensure besides, never, let get in yet again

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Humanity is a sign determined by the content of
Habits either good or bad, at a grade of inhabit
Prince Arjuna puts the query to Lord Sri Krishna
Why does human compel to sinful acts even reluctantly, as if
Engaged by force. Lord speaks the answer as mentioned above
The main cause is lust which makes the mind worst
Keeping away hanker is sort, leading a happy life
In the ‘'Geetha'' third chapter in verses 37 to 43
