Kural of Tiruvalluvar – Teachings from Tirukkural on True Knowledge



True knowledge is an inner fortification that enemies cannot destroy, and is the ultimate, impregnable defense.

True knowledge controls thought and conduct and keeps both away from evil, and helps one to keep in that right path.

Knowledge befriends the world. It fosters a spirit of equanimity saving one from both excitement and depression.

A discriminating mind is the greatest of possessions. Without it, all other possessions will come to nothing.
