Teachings from Tirumurai

Plough with truth. Plant the seed of desire for knowledge. Weed out falsehood. Irrigate the mind with the water of patience. Supervise your work by introspection and self-analysis. Build the fence of yama and niyama. You will soon attain Sivananda or eternal bliss of Siva.The Lord is both inside and outside, form and no form. He is both the flood and the bank. He is the broad-rayed sun. Himself the highest mystery, He is in all hidden thoughts. He is thought and meaning, and embraces all who embrace Him.Tirumurai - Tirumurai is an ancient Tamil book consisting of songs in praise of Lord Shiva.
