Not Offending The Great - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
891. Not to insult the abilities of the powerful
is the chiefest of all guarding acts of themselves.
892. Life without respect to the great will make
repercussions of irretrievable evil.
893. To be ruined by yourself, commit willful crimes.
To be ruined by the foes, act against the mighty.
894. If the weak wreak havoc on the strong
it is like beckoning the god of death, going somewhere.
895. Those who are frowned upon by the cruel, mighty king
can’t thrive wherever they flee.
896. One can survive the conflagration
but can’t if one offends great ones in life.
897. If the worthy eyes of many a virtue frown
what can enriched kingly life and immense wealth do?
898. If the mountain-like affronted great ones curse,
the affluent will annihilate with all their households.
899. If the great with lofty ideals frown, even the kings,
will lose their crown and go up in flames.
900. Even those with limitless support can’t escape
if the great sages of virtue in penance glower.
