Tirukkural 166: Not Envying

He who is envious at a gift (made to another) will with his relations utterly perish destitute of food and rainment.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Meditation is not an escape from the exterior world. We have to straighten ourselves out in the exterior world first before meditation and inner life can really be successful.
—Gurudeva
