Tirukkural 174: Not Coveting

The wise who have conquered their senses and are free from crime, will not covet (the things of others), with the thought "we are destitute".

One who performs japa properly will realize what he knows. You see, japa opens up the inner mind and focuses the energies of certain chakras, which are consciousness encased within the psychic nerve ganglia of the nadi network.
