Tirukkural 350: Renunciation of Desires and Clinging onto God

Desire the desire of Him who is without desire; in order to renounce desire, desire that desire.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Sins are the crippling distortions of intellect bound in emotion. When we sin, we take the energy and distort it to our instinctive favor.
