Not Offending the Grea
The best way to guard oneself is to not spite The powers of the prowess. Irreverence to the great will lead To endless trouble through them. If destruction you desire, provoke those Who in turn can destroy as they desire. For the weak to challenge the mighty Is to summon yama with the hand. Where can he go and how can he thrive, Who falls foul of a powerful king? One may survive even if burnt in fire But no survival for those who offend the great. What avails glorious life and great wealth If one incurs the wrath of the virtuous great? If you underestimate the eminent, You will be shaken off the earth of all your ties. Even the mightiest of kings can perish midway If men of high repute burst in rage. Even men with all their might and aid Cannot be saved if great sages frown.
