Tirukkural 625: Hopefulness in Trouble

The troubles of that man will be troubled (and disappear) who, however thickly they may come upon him, does not abandon (his purpose).

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The holy vel is our release from ignorance into knowledge, our release from vanity into modesty, our release from sinfulness into purity through tapas.
—Gurudeva
