Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 18

Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 18
Originally written in Hindi by my late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor
1899 to 1994. The work was written in Hindi somewhere around 1965-70.

Editing and English version by Ravindra K Kapoor.

Hindi Title  ‘Madan Dahan’ 18

Compassion degraded by passion,
Would make him weak,
And weakness would make him intransitive,
Making him brute and selfish.

That robs the sense of duty,
Creates only sensual desires,
Which bring total destruction,
Making him self-destructive.

Thus under his influence,
Man would acquire beast form,
And would destroy human glory,
Through exploitation of the weak.

    I like that men who prey on the weak are described as beasts. Our glory, then, comes from overcoming the baser nature of the self.

    Ravindra, you are already at part 16....I will have to back-track some. A lot of ponderings still going on here. The primal beast of lust pulsing beneath the skin.
