Tirukkural 495: Knowing the Place

In deep water, a crocodile will conquer (all other animals); but if it leave the water, other animals will conquer it.

The sannyasin balances within himself both the male and female energies. Complete unto himself, he is whole and independent. Having attained an equilibrium of ida and pingala, he becomes a knower of the known.
