Thirukural - Vaazhkkai Thunainalam - Kural 51 - 60


குறள்/Couplet

As doth the house beseem, she shows her wifely dignity;
51


If household excellence be wanting in the wife,
52


There is no lack within the house, where wife in worth excels, There is no luck within the house, where wife dishonoured dwells
53


If woman might of chastity retain, What choicer treasure doth the world contain
54


No God adoring, low she bends before her lord; Then rising, serves: the rain falls instant at her word
55


Who guards herself, for husband's comfort cares, her household's fame, In perfect wise with sleepless soul preserves, -give her a woman's name
56


Of what avail is watch and ward? Honour's woman's safest guard
57


If wife be wholly true to him who gained her as his bride, Great glory gains she in the world where gods bliss abide
58


Who have not spouses that in virtue's praise delight, They lion-like can never walk in scorner's sight
59


The house's 'blessing', men pronounce the house-wife excellent; The gain of blessed children is its goodly ornament
