Tirukkural 1057: Mendicancy

Beggars rejoice exceedingly when they behold those who bestow (their alms) with kindness and courtesy.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The Self, or Parasiva, is an experience only after it has been experienced. Yet, it is not an experience at all, but the only possible nonexperience, which registers in its aftermath upon the mind of man.
—Gurudeva
