Tirukkural 547: The Right Sceptre

The king defends the whole world; and justice, when administered without defect, defends the king.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Karma is the law of cause and effect, action and reaction governing maya. Anava is the individuating veil of duality, source of ignorance and finitude. Maya is the classroom, karma the teacher, and anava the student's ignorance.
—Gurudeva
