Title

The Greatness of a King

img11
Kural NumberKural
img11
381He is lion among kings who is well-endowed with these six possessions:
Army, citizens, wealth, ministers, allies and fortresses.
img11
382Four are the characteristics which a king cannot lack:
Fearlessness, generosity, wisdom and industriousness.
img11
383In those who rule the land these three must never lapse:
Vigilance, valiance and virtuous learning.
img11
384He is a true king who, unswerving in virtue,
Restrains wrongdoing, and, steadfast in courage, maintains his honor.
img11
385A king is he who can amass a treasury of wealth,
Store it, guard it and expend it wisely.
img11
386All peoples praise that nation whose sovereign
Is always accessible and never speaks severely.
img11
387Behold the King who speaks sweetly, gives generously and
Protects powerfully- the world, esteems his word its command.
img11
388Ruling righteously himself and safeguarding subjects from others,
A monarch may be deemed divine by his people.
img11
389The world abides protected beneath the umbrella
Of a virtuous king who can abide words bitter to the ear.
img11
390He is a light ruler who is endowed with the four merits
Of generosity, graciousness, justice and care for the people.
