Tirukkural 27: The Greatness of Ascetics

The world is within the knowledge of him who knows the properties of taste, sight, touch, hearing and smell

Those of you who are wrestling with the mind in your many endeavors to try to concentrate the mind, to try to meditate, to try to become quiet, to try to relax, keep trying. Every positive effort that you make is not in vain.
