Tirukkural 234: Renown

If one has acquired extensive fame within the limits of this earth, the world of the Gods will no longer praise those sages who have attained that world.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
You must purify yourself. You purify yourself by being kind to others, being generous until it hurts, being benevolent, being ready to serve at all times until you are strained in serving. Put a smile on the faces of other people.
—Gurudeva
