Tirukkural 610: Unsluggishness

The king who never gives way to idleness will obtain entire possession of (the whole earth) passed over by him who measured (the worlds) with His foot.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
People wonder about their past lives, but it doesn't really matter who you were in your past lives. It is the cumulative creation of what you've done in the past which has manifested in what you are in this life that should concern you.
—Gurudeva
