Thirukkural Teachings on Love



Life functions really in love – Without tenderness of heart, the body is but bone covered up with skin. In love alone is the secret of life.
The domestic state of that man whose mind is without love is like the flourishing of a withered tree upon the hard desert.
Just as the outer ear or eye may be there, but it is no avail to the deaf and the blind, similarly the life of a householder is purposeless and soulless without a tender heart.
