Tirukkural 364: Freedom from Desires

Purity (of mind) consists in freedom from desire; and that (freedom from desire) is the fruit of the love of truth.

To transcend the mind and reach the ultimate goal, seekers need the guidance of a satguru, an enlightened master who has followed the path to its natural end and can lead them to the Divine within themselves.
