Tirukkural 338: Instability oh Human Life

The love of the soul to the body is like (the love of) a bird to its egg which it flies away from and leaves empty.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The good-and-bad concept should be thrown out with a lot of other things, including the up-and-down concept. There is no good; there is no bad. You don't raise your consciousness, nor do you lower it.
—Gurudeva
