Tirukkural 124: Possession of Self-Restraint

Tirukkural 124: More lofty than a mountain will be the greatness of that man who without swerving from his domestic state, controls himself

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
—Gurudeva
