Tirukkural 256: Abstinence from Flesh

If the world does not destroy life for the purpose of eating, then no one would sell flesh for the sake of money.

Nothing is more precious than the first soul-quickening, life-changing shaktipata from a guru. Nothing is more central to spiritual awakening than the progressive dikshas, or initiations, he bestows.
