Kural - 255

Kural 255
Holy Kural #255
If flesh you eat not, life's abodes unharmed remain;
Who eats, hell swallows him, and renders not again

Not to eat flesh contributes to the continuance of life; therefore if a man eat flesh, hell will not open its mouth (to let him escape out, after he has once fallen in).
