The Company We Keep

Verses of Vemana – 67

kanulupovuvadu kallupoyenavadu
ubhayularayagudi yundunatlu
peda peda guudi penagoniyundunu
viswadhabhirama vinura vema

Commentary: The human magnet is, in one sense, diametrically opposed to the ordinary magnet. While in the latter like poles repel, in the former like-minded attract one another. Good draws good and evil, evil. Vemana says that this is similar to the blind associating with the blind, the lame with the lame and the poor with the poor. The underlying message is that if one is willing to change oneself, all one has to do is to change one’s company: the company of men and more importantly the company of thoughts. It is that simple.

  1. I truly agree with this verse. I think knowledge is the only thing which is abundant. There is so much wider scope for learning. People should share their knowledge and experiences with others. We can get knowledge from anyone whether he is a rich or a poor man, whether we are in a good or a bad company but the only thing is that we should extract only the good things and left all what is useless. From a bad guy also we may get some experience of not doing the mistakes what he is continuously doing. Good things attract good things so in my opinion we must be the change first in order to eat the fruits of our Karma and totally forget the evil part…the negative thinking. 🙂
