Tirukkural 47: Domestic Life

Among all those who labour (for future happiness) he is greatest who lives well in the household state

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
You have to realize It to know It; and after you realize It, you know It; and before you realize It, you want It; and after you realize It, you don't want It. You have lost something. You have lost your goal for Self Realization, because you've got it.
—Gurudeva
