Qualities of one’s purity without feeling guilty! Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
At least while you are going to eat,
One should eat after taking bath!
However great benefit you are getting already
You should not say one sided witness with partiality!
Even if you are going to die without nutrition
Resulting in shrinkage of your body and skin,
If a person is not compromising in governing
His virtue and his character by maintaining!
The above said are the three qualities of one’s purity
Without feeling guilty mentally, verbally and physically!
