Tirukkural 409: The Unlearned

The unlearned, though born in a high caste, are not equal in dignity to the learned; though they may have been born in a low caste.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Remember, when the seal is broken and clear white light has flooded the mind, there is no more a gap between the inner and the outer. Even uncomplimentary states of consciousness can be dissolved through meditation and seeking again the light.
