Tirukkural 589: King & Spies

Let a king employ spies so that one may have no knowledge of the other; and when the information of three agrees together, let him receive it.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
When we are selfish, self-centered and flare up and lose control of ourselves, we are like animals. When we reflect understanding, have control of ourselves and use our will to conquer our lower nature, we are using the Godly part of our mind.
—Gurudeva
