అవిగింగ॥

కాకరకాయలంటివి కాకడి వ్రాయికల్;

పచ్చిగ నములుచో బల్ నంజమటు తోఁచు;

కూరగా వండికొని కుడిచినచోఁ గమ్మన

తగు పోహణోజ తారకాణముల మైన్.

-౬౪, మన్మిత్రోవ, వల్మిరిగం

Kākarakāyalaṇṭivi kākaḍi vrāyikal;

Pacciga namuluĉō bal nañjamaṭu tōn̆ĉu;

Kūragā vaṇḍikoni kuḍicinaĉōn̆ gammana

Tagu pōhaṇōja tārakāṇamula main.

- Verse #64, Manmitrōva, Valmirigam


"Philosophical works are bitter as the bittergourd which tastes like poison if eaten raw. The same bittergourd feels yummy when cooked and served as a curry. In the same way, philosophical truths sound vexatious if written straightforward. But the same will be enjoyable if combined with similes studded in a poetic style" - Vācaspati
