The book takes on many dimensions as time passes. The single most important work of literature I've read so far. Mankutimmana Kagga is one of the most crucial works of literature that conveys profound philosophy in poems of them of mere four lines each.
The work covers nearly every nuance of everyday life while conveying the much needed wisdom. DVG has given insights on simplicity, balance, attachment, detachment, morals, learning, emotional conditioning, nature, hunger, self awareness, hardwork, duties, cosmos, the Universe etc. No wonde The single most important work of literature I've read so far. From those that I understood without the help of translation, the way DVG strings extremely common words to convey striking philosophies is pure genius.
Message being, we should learn to accept and deal with uncertainty. English equivalent: And in time, this too shall pass. Message being, excess of anything is harmful.
It is a book that needs to be read at every stage of life. Apr 12, Ravindra Pai rated it it was amazing. Even though I am not a fan of poetry but when poetry meets philosophy it is just magic. Albert Camus says "life is absurd", but DVG invites you to embrace the absurdity with love. Friedrich Nietzsche says "strive for greatness". As the years pass by, you tell yourself "Yup, Oldman is right" :D. Feb 27, Chandrashekar BC rated it it was amazing. Aug 05, Raviraj rated it it was amazing.
