2. The acts forbidden and those to be followed.

Tamil
 You who enjoy life on earth, listen!
       The rituals for deity go through we duteous;
    Chant the foot of the Supremo who had 
       Reposed in stealth on the ocean milky;
    Bathe we early; relish not ghee or milk
       Nor would kemp, nor adorn with flower beauteous;
    Grace not with eyeliner; nor bid deeds forbidden;
       Nor go around ear kiss tale or malicious gossip
       Help the worthy and poor utmost by gift or alms toss'd
       With mind pleasant, study the chores engross'd;
       Listen and consider, our damsel.
