Sub­lime virtues

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - FEATURES -

In the mighty In­dian Ocean

In this won­der­ful lit­tle isle

We - Sri Lankans, are proud of, the mean­ing­ful ‘Na­tional Flag’

The four ‘Bo’ leaves that stand in the four cor­ners Metta, Mu­ditha, Karuna, Upekkha are the trea­sures of valu­able virtues that lead us to a life sub­lime. Metta for lov­ing kind­ness; benev­o­lence Karuna for com­pas­sion; care and con­cern Mu­ditha for em­pa­thetic joy

Upekkha for equa­nim­ity; a bal­anced state of mind.

That is what should be ful­filled by one and all, who are skilled in good­ness must - live in peace, har­mony and broth­er­hood!

So, let’s arise! Awake!

Striv­ing to live out the sub­lime virtues car­ing and lov­ing, with kind­ness; liv­ing out in equal­ity and full con­scious­ness as one united na­tion!

The more we are aware

The more hu­mane we will be ir­re­spec­tive of caste, creed and race. Let’s bow down to val­ues and virtues to let our na­tion glow!
