Verse 357. Those Without The Bane Of Ill-Will

Weeds are a fault of fields,
hate’s a human fault,
hence offerings to the hateless
bear abundant fruit.

Explanation: Fields have weeds as their bane. The ordinary masses have passion as their bane. Therefore, high yields are possible only through what is given to those without ill-will.
