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.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The Self, or Parasiva, is an experience only after it has been experienced. Yet, it is not an experience at all, but the only possible nonexperience, which registers in its aftermath upon the mind of man.
—Gurudeva
