A Person Who Is Superior To The Holy Persons In The Land Of Gods!


O’ A girl who adorns her hairdo
…with flowers rich in honey!

A person who doesn't like killing persons,
…doesn’t kill any other living beings,

doesn’t qualm for eating flesh,
…shall n’t make others in most distress,

shall not take vengeance,
…never act with partiality at the least,

is not only superior to the people
…of this earthly world,

but also superior to the holy persons
…in the land of Gods!

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
