Like a shadow is reputation
If you chase the shadow
It will elude you in consternation.

If you work for fame
You’ll be disappointed
Like chasing the shadow game.

Only when you tread the path
Of Dharma and Spirituality’s by- path
Fame you will perforce find
And with repute you will be assigned.

For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
