Homely Stay And Saintly Lead - Poem by Dr.Balnarayana Bandam

Man , saints are both divines make
no demarcation one can remake
persons never, but personalities peaks
the way of life and the reaction to speak
Lord Sri Krishna speak, never be away
Stay home, but keep mind and body allay
Though household, feelnature's home
Asceticism to attain one needs nay roam
The homely person thus, stickto certain rules and rites
thy is, a saint to count and never differ despite
Body, speech, the senses, are held and trained
reveringLord, brahmins,spiritual master and
Superiors like father mother, guests are served
Cleanliness, simplicity, celibacy,nonviolence merited
does the austerities of the human body reigned
speech austerity dwells while worthy, andtruth retained
Including, UN hurting others, Vedas to recite
Mind sticking toserenity, simplicity,gravity delight
Self-control, purity of thought are of worthy life
This three-fold austerity adept and continued inlife,
whos aims are selfless and materially un-assign
become a saint, in fact, pleases nature's supreme, design

Form: Narrative
