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
The greatest inhibiting factor in practicing bhakti yoga is the doubting, cynical, intellectual mind. Doubt and skepticism harden the heart and narrow the mind.
