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
We begin to consciously dance with Siva, to move with the sacred flow that surrounds us, to accept praise and blame, joy and sorrow, prosperity and adversity in equanimity, the fruit of understanding.
—Gurudeva
