Knowing the answer advice is asked generally,
Following the same be rare unquestionably,
After giving it do ever be indifferent perfectly,
And never expect it to be followed truthfully. [1]
 
In giving advice seek to help - not please only,
Most receive advice but profit from it hardly,
Advice received should not be framed clearly,
Its implementation be the solution surely. [2]
 
Advice uncalled for should never be given,
Advice from person in difficulty not taken,
Keep advice from loved ones - even unpleasant,
Never advise on war, marriage or such event. [3]
 
Advice from friends receive open mindedly,
Never give up to it or follow it blindly,
Whether right or wrong grasp totally,
With judicious reserve comprehend fully. [4]
 
If asked for advice - give wholeheartedly,
Even if knowing its acceptance be failingly,
For in giving the same it helps your clarity,
Showing your own life’s path - so lucidly. [5]
