Tirukkural 940: Gambling

As the gambler loves (his vice) the more he loses by it, so does the soul love (the body) the more it suffers through it.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The stone or metal Deity images are not mere symbols of the Gods; they are the form through which their love, power and blessings flood forth into this world.
—Gurudeva
