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
Sadhana allows us to live in the refined and cultured soul nature, rather than in the outer, instinctive or intellectual spheres.
