Akka Mahadevi Teachings

Having made one’s home on the hill-top, how can One afford to be afraid of the beasts? Having made one’s home on the seashore, how can one afford to be afraid of the surging waves?
Having made one’s home in the market-place, how Can one afford to shrink from its noise? Hear what I say, O Chenna Mallikarjuna:
Having been born in this world, one should not Lose one’s temper at praise or blame But maintain the poise of one’s spirit.
