Knowing The Way Of Doing (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
461. Think and consider the loss, return and the profit
and then proceed to act the deed.
462. Before an action, if you deliberate with chosen friends,
think deep yourself, nothing is hard to do to you.
463. The wise will not encourage a transaction to lose
the capital in the hope of making a large profit.
464. Those who fear reproach will not commence anything
That is not clearly probed.
465. It is to help the foe to get firm rooted in his place
to rise against him without well designed plans.
466. It brings ruin if he does what it is not fit to do
and does not do what it is fit to do.
467. Think things over before you begin to do a deed.
It is a disgrace to think over after you began to do.
468. Making no efforts in right ways to do a deed will end in
the deed undone even if many men stand up for you.
469. Mistakes occur even when you do good things to people
Without knowing the dispositions of every one.
470. Reflect and do things which bring no disgrace.
The world will not approve of things unbecoming to you.
