Do Not Delay Doing Good

Verses of Vemana – 57

kura yudaku venuka kuduna kasaveru
yerukagalgi munupe yeravalayu
sthalamu tappu venuka dharamambu puttuna
viswadhabhirama vinura vema

Commentary: Vemana says that vegetables should be cleaned before cooking. There is no way one can wash them after preparing the dish. Similarly, once the thought of doing good materializes in the mind, it should be put into action. Else, it slips into oblivion.

Someone said ‘I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show for any fellow creature let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.’ How true!
