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
Occasionally, in a cross-section of the inner mind, when light merges into transcendental form, the young aspirant may view the golden actinic face of a master peering into his, kindly and all-knowing. He is looking at his own great potential.
