Tirukkural 411: Heaing Knowledge

Wealth (gained) by the ear is wealth of wealth; that wealth is the chief of all wealth.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
We're here to realize the Self, have that one dramatic experience where everything that we thought was things is turned upside down, and our whole perspective afterwards changes. That is the purpose for living on this Earth.
—Gurudeva
