138. Responding with a melting heart for the past wrong
use of his tongue in wretched human praise, let the
poet live gloriously, taking to the new resolution, ‘I
will no more sing in praise of any human being, but
to the glory of God alone’.

139. Those who, instead of dedicating to God’s Feet the
poetic flow which they achieved by His Grace, squan-
der it in unworthy human praise are, alas, like those
who compel their daughter, the tongue’s eloquence,
to take to prostitution.

Michael James: The words ‘their daughter, the tongue’s elo-
quence’ may alternatively be translated as ‘the Goddess of Elo-
quence [Saraswati]’.

140. The divine flow of poetry can spring only from a heart
which has become still, being completely freed by
Self-attention from all attachment towards the five
sheaths, starting with
Annamaya [the body com-
posed of food].
