Tirukkural 409: The Unlearned

The unlearned, though born in a high caste, are not equal in dignity to the learned; though they may have been born in a low caste.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Fear is another shadow which causes man to have an inability to face a critical moment, even in the intimacy of his deepest meditation.
—Gurudeva
