Ignorance (By St. Thiruvalluvar In Tamil) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

841.Want of knowledge is the greatest of all wants.
Lack of anything else will not be deemed as a want.
842.A simpleton’s bounty with a pleasing heart is nothing but
the grace of the receiver’s good deeds of his last birth.
843.The self-infliction of pain by the foolish person
will not be possible to do even to his deadly foes.
844.What we mean by stupidity is the self-conceitedness
of the foolish that is ‘we have the wisdom of the wise’.
845.If he who assumes to know and refer to the works not read
Doubts will be cast on what he mastered well.
846.When one doesn’t purge the faults in oneself
It is silly to conceal one’s secret parts.
847.The fool who keeps not the top secret in mind and forgets,
inflicts on himself a great misery.
848.Pay not heed to the wise; doesn’t do it himself.
A plaque is his life to the world lasting unto his death.
849.He who wants to teach a fool is a fool himself.
But a fool becomes knowledgeable in his own known ways.
850.What the world affirms, a fool denies.
So the world treats him as a devil and keeps him off.
