Tirukkural 155: Possession of Patience

Who wreak their wrath as worthless are despised; Who patiently forbear as gold are prized

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
This physical world, though necessary to our evolution, is the embodiment of impermanence, of constant change. Thus, we take care not to become overly attached to it.
—Gurudeva
