Tirukkural 189: Not Back Biting

The world through charity supports the weight of those who reproach others observing their absence.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Karma is the law of cause and effect, action and reaction governing maya. Anava is the individuating veil of duality, source of ignorance and finitude. Maya is the classroom, karma the teacher, and anava the student's ignorance.
—Gurudeva
