Tirukkural 863: The Might of Hatred

In the estimation of foes miserably weak is he, who is timid, ignorant, unsociable and niggardly

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
It is not a matter of becoming the Self, but of realizing that you never were not the Self. And what is that Self? It is Parasiva. It is God. It is That which is beyond the mind, beyond thought, feeling and emotion, beyond time, form and space.
—Gurudeva
