The Method Of Acting (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
671.The end of counsel is to pass a resolution
And delay breeds distress in its execution.
672.You sleep on some actions which need procrastination.
But don’t hold fire actions which demand quick execution.
673.It is good to complete your deeds wherever it is possible.
Otherwise wait for the opening of some ways feasible.
674.Think over on incomplete action and unresolved hostility
Which wax like smouldering fire to ruin.
675.Be clear sighted on five things as the treasure, time, ,
Instrument, deed and place before doing any action.
676.Before doing an action, reflect on the efforts,
hinderances and the accruing profits.
677.Before you begin to do a deed, consult an expert
To know the method and the secrets of doing it well.
678.While doing one thing, try to accomplish another thing.
It is like one rutting elephant subdues another elephant.
679.Make haste to conciliate with foes in crisis
rather than to continue rewards to allies.
680.Seeing the the strong but peace loving king’s army,
The weak king makes compromise fearing his shivering mind.
