Tirukkural 193: Against Vain Speaking

That conversation in which a man utters forth useless things will say of him "he is without virtue"

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.
—Gurudeva
