Fwd: tongue tied



Lakshmeer vasathy jihwaagrey jihwaagrey mithrbandhavaah
bandhanam chaiva jihwagrey jihwagrey maranam dhruvam

लक्ष्मीर्वसति जिह्वाग्रे जिह्वाग्रे मित्रबान्धवाः 
बन्धनं चैव जिह्वाग्रे जिह्वाग्रे मरणं ध्रुवं 
ലക്ഷ്മീര്‍ വസതി ജിഹ്വാഗ്രെ 
ജിഹ്വാഗ്രെ മിത്രബാന്ധവാ
ബന്ധനം ചൈവ ജിഹ്വാഗ്രെ 
ജിഹ്വാഗ്രെ  മരണം ധ്രുവം


Lakshmi, one's wealth can be kept in her place if you have a disciplined tongue (dont talk to taxmen) friends and relatives can be retained well only if you use your tongue properly ( hope use of tongue -cleaner is also implied here, ) one can end up in captivity misusing the tongue ( dont speak truth to a policeman nor to a woman even if she is your mother) and the tip of the tongue can bestow death on us (either foolish words or foolish foods)
