Tirukkural 101: Gratitude

(The gift of) heaven and earth is not an equivalent for a benefit which is conferred where none had been received

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Sages declare that mantra is life, that mantra is action, that mantra is love and that the repetition of mantra, japa, bursts forth wisdom from within.
—Gurudeva
