Tirukkural 74: Possession of Love

Love begets desire: and that (desire) begets the immeasureable excellence of friendship

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Understanding, loving and making allowances--these are the strengths of the soul awakened through sadhana, once the emotional ups and downs and the barriers of the instinctive influences of fear, jealousy, anger, deceit and disappointment are conquered.
