Mahaveer Preaches - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Anger, Pride, Deceit and Greed
Are the four flaws you denounce,
Said the saint Mahaveer,600 B.C.
Anger spurts when pride is at stake.
Pride reacts when deceit steps in.
Deceit lurks as greed sets in.

Greed is born of insecurity.
Faith in you can remove it.
Faith in God also removes it.
You can live serene, rich or poor.

[Mahaveer is of Jain Religon,
Which flourished in India, ahead of Vedic Religion]
