O, Lord Ekambara

                      enshrined in Kanchi!

          It makes no difference

                      whether they live or die

          they who are

                      compulsive liars,

          they who denigrate

                      good and noble souls,

                                they who abuse

                                            the mothers who gave them birth,

                                they who are engaged

                                            in endless schemings,

                                they who do not care

                                            to learn the sacred texts,

                                they who fail to extend

                                            any help to others,

                                and they who turn away

                                            supplicants in distress.



[Tamil poem by  PATTINATHAR (10th century A.D)  rendered into English by Sage TGN]
