Tirukkural 501: Selection and Confidence

Let (a minister) be chosen, after he has been tried by means of these four things, viz,-his virtue, (love of) money, (love of) sexual pleasure, and tear of (losing) life.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Be free from the past; abide in the present; detach yourself from the future; and live in the eternal now. Evil has no source, unless the source of evil's seeming be ignorance itself.
—Gurudeva
