Tirukkural 807: Familiarity

Those who have (long) stood in the path of affection will not give it up even if their friends cause (them) their ruin.

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Being on the brink of Self Realization, having lost consciousness of the physical body and of being a mind, you are only conscious of a vast, bluish white light. You get into this through going into the clear white light and out through the other side of it.
—Gurudeva
