Ahimsa, a great weapon to object;

Buddhism left an indelible impact.

Courtesy flourished in His life;

Duty was a weapon to save from strife.

Egoism was far away from His routine.

Faith was deeply rooted as the divine.

God-like works he did in His entire life.

Honesty was the best policy, not knife.

Ideals served as a goal to His paths.

Justice by Him was worth more than the truths –

Kindness, a virtue for the betterment –

Love, the key passion in His sentiment –

Mankind, a subject of His object –

Nature, for Him, was never to deject.

Offensive, He never seemed to be.

Peace-lover, He was a man to glee.

Quality in anyone He used to fan.

Religion, for Him, was the service to man.

Simplicity and service were His makeup.

‘Truth is God, and God is Truth, in His map’.

Understanding, always in His clutch;

Virtues were showered by Him to reach.

Welfare to all, was, the core of His work.

Xoanon, He was not, but to end the dark.

Yarns were spun by Him for chastity.

Zeal in Him was ever to serve humanity.
