We have many treatises in all Religions,Languages on virtue,On what is Good,Bad,and what makes one Happy and contented.
I am yet to find some thing which is something very simple and appealing to follow or at least understand and the one that makes me interested at least in attempting to follow.
These are theLyrics of one of The Great Lyricists of Tamil Movies,Mr.Kannadasan, a Legend, who could capture the essence of Life in ordinary words in Tamil which we use every day, from a delectable Tamil Film, Sivaji Starrer ‘Aanadavan Kattalai
As translations do not seem to be available I have tried to capture the spirit of the message and I can assure you that it is not in any way near to the original, such is my incompetence.
I am posting this deliberately in English so that people who do not know Tamil may have a chance to read and enjoy noble thoughts.
I am interested in posting that in my way.
What is the Ultimate aim of man?
It all boils down to one thing.
It is happiness.
And I have found that Contentment is the key to happiness.
I would go as far as to say that Contentment is Happiness.
In six simple day-to-day Tamil Kannadasan captures the essence.
This is it.
Words ,Deed Thy be One ,
Peace Forever be Thine,
Pain, Gain woven betwixt,
Six,The Ways Hath He set,
“aaru maname aaru, andha andavan kattalai aaru
