Tirukkural 268: Penance

All other creatures will worship him who has attained the control of his own soul.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
We begin to consciously dance with Siva, to move with the sacred flow that surrounds us, to accept praise and blame, joy and sorrow, prosperity and adversity in equanimity, the fruit of understanding.
—Gurudeva
