Tthe Know-How Of Earning Wealth (By St. Thiruvalluvar) R) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

751.That is wealth which makes a poor of some worth.
Nothing else does it on this earth.
752.The destitute all abhor.
But no one fails to adore the rich.
753.The ever-glowing wealth reaches all lands
and dispels the darkness of enmity.
754.The hard-earned wealth acquired by right means
gives Virtue and Pleasure.
755.Let it be unsought, the wealth
that is earned without grace and love.
756.The treasure unearthed, the tax collected and the tribute,
the beaten foe sends are the revenues to the King.
757.It happens that wealth nurses the child, Grace,
borne by Love.
758.One’s business started with some capital will flourish,
as one sees an elephant-fight from the safe hill-top.
759.There is no weapon sharper than wealth
to cut the arrogance of a proud foe.
760.Those who gained the glorious wealth in plenty
will obtain Virtue and Pleasure with ease in bounty.
