Tirukkural 93: The Utterance of Pleasant Words

Sweet speech, flowing from the heart (uttered) with a cheerful countenance and a sweet look, is true virtue

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Most people try to experience God through other people. Disciples see a guru as God. Wives see their husband as God. Devotees see the Deity in the temple as God. But all the time, behind the eyes of their seeing, is God.
