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
Our religion tells us that because we love God Siva, we love one another, for God Siva loves all of us. Our religion tells us that God Siva is like a father and a mother, not a vengeful God, but a God of love who helps us.
—Gurudeva
