Varuna, the Sea God, on his Makara Vahana

Varuna sits astride his Makara, transversing the seas.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
In a relaxed state, happiness is found, and the qualities of the soul shine forth. Selfish, greedy people are tense, concerned, often inhibited. Tension breeds negative thinking.
