Tirukkural 70: The Wealth of Children

(So to act) that it may be said "by what great penance did his father beget him," is the benefit which a son should render to his father

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
