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.

In practicing affectionate detachment, we are learning to live in the here and now, right in the moment. We are awakening the power of direct cognition, the power that enables us to understand what happens, when it happens and why it happens.
