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
The outer worship is approaching God properly, presenting ourselves acceptably. It is to offer our love, our adoration and then to speak out our prayer, our petition.
—Gurudeva
