durbar-square-bhaktapurPrudent Judgement

Right from the beginning of humanity,

This world seems to be moving towards unfair judgment;

Where— the books are still judged by their well-managed cover,

And alligators are forced to live the lives of crocodiles.


When Alligator forgets its charismatic nature,

And go to live overseas, attracted to the mirage reality,

It can never achieve soul liberation.

As you may be the crocodile dealing with an alligator,

For this, I say never to impose our path on them.


When one is vulnerable to losing its environment,

Due to the intrusion of centralized paths by others,

It is certain to slip uncontrollably someday.

No matter how well-furnished the path seems to be,

That would be like the mermaid.


So long as the psychology we encounter is exotic,

Every verdict may not entirely be prudent.

Thus, there is always a place for the ‘Psychological Renaissance’.

Before that, the personalized social judgment we practice;

Most have a life-taking encounter with the ‘Mesozoic Era’.
