Tirukkural 615: Manly Effort

He who desires not pleasure, but desires labour, will be a pillar to sustain his relations, wiping away their sorrows.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Don't get up after your meditation and immediately run off to do something. Sit in silent stillness until that power subsides in a gradual and refined way.
—Gurudeva
