Tirukkural 767: The Excellence of an Army

That is an army which knowing the art of warding off an impending struggle, can bear against the dust-van (of a hostile force).

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
The mystic lives, and is taught to live, two-thirds within himself and only one-third in the external. In learning how to do this, the mystic is taught to become consciously conscious, or aware that he is aware.
