Tirurukkural 637: The Office of Minister of State

Though you are acquainted with the (theoretical) methods (of performing an act), understand the ways of the world and act accordingly.

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
