Tirukkural 615: Manly Effort

He who desires not pleasure, but desires labour, will be a pillar to sustain his relations, wiping away their sorrows.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Sins are the crippling distortions of intellect bound in emotion. When we sin, we take the energy and distort it to our instinctive favor.
—Gurudeva
