Tirukkural 767: The Excellence of an Army

That is an army which knowing the art of warding off an impending struggle, can bear against the dust-van (of a hostile force).

Peace is the natural state of the mind. It is there, inside, to be discovered in meditation, maintained through self-control, and then radiated out to others.
